I write lots of poetry - some of it is about diabetes. Here's one of the first d poems i wrote.
there is no Richter scale to measure
the slow and small seismic movements
that plague a sugar deprived body
adrenaline is released quickly
when glucose levels drop too low
causing shakiness, dysphoria,
a tremor through a body at rest,
the expression of a stalling
negative feedback mechanism
at a standstill, transfixed, paralyzed
one moment, a broken history
the building preserved for nostalgia
and the next, historians watch bricks
each clinks to the ground and shatters
with no construction workers in sight.
