Sunlight, it

Shines bright in my eyes,

Paints me in bronze,

Gifts me with

Glistening, golden, effervescent eyelashes and

Fluttering, autumn, amber eyelids and now

Everything I see is hazy and psychedelic as the –


Sunlight, it

Washes over me and

Pseudo-solves all of

My woes

Now, I am nothing but an ethereal extension

Of the brilliant, luminous ball of flame

That gleams with the promise

My woes

Won’t come back when the –


Sunlight, it

Smothers me with sprawling warmth

That catches on my breathe and

Settles in my pores and

Coats my core and

Drips off my limbs

As I turn every surface of me towards the –


Sunlight, it

Shatters, as the rays reach me and splinter

Into the thinnest whispers of copper threads

That I see everywhere I look and

I see even with my eyes closed as they

Find and fill every crevice around

As the sounds


And the movements


And nothing in the world exists


This single split second in time and the –

    Great post.
    I just wanted to ask why this name and tag line??


    • Ella says:

      Funny you should ask because the tag line is about to change. “Sick and Sick of It” because I’ve had fibromyalgia since I was 14 (started the blog when I was 15), and I am indeed sick and very sick of it. The tag line was because I was going through a very difficult time when I started this blog. It’s about to change because, at almost 20, I feel differently. It’ll change next week on my 20th birthday…

        I am glad times have changed. I just googled fibromyalgia, I am really sorry for what you go through and you must have actually been very sick of it. I am really really glad that you feel differently and better. 😇
        Hope you have a great year ahead. Happy 20th!


      • Ella says:

        Thank you so much! It means the world that you were moved to google the condition. I’m still sick, unfortunately, it’s just that I have more in my life than just my illness now. Thank you for the birthday wishes and stay tuned on the 31st to see what the new tag line is! Every year on my birthday I write about what has happened and evolved since the last – this will be my fifth birthday post…

    An enclosed rhyme reply:

    A beautiful poem, words, with a bit of you, enriched by a warming sun.
    A warm sun filled day, just you, in your world, all alone with nature.
    A friend indeed, the sun, but don’t abuse it, heed nature, its censure.
    Your never alone, don’t let reality hurt, although life alone can be fun!



  9. I love the sunlight too!
