Hysterical

#fear #reaction

They told you to calm down

Over reaction was never the right course of action

But then again, this had been building up

Since the letter fell through the letterbox

If they’d read your medical notes

They would have realised

The administration of a drug

Wasn’t going to be that easy

For the sight of a shining hypodermic

Would be enough to send you haywire

Going to pieces before you went through the door

Tortured

salford, 12th October 2018

#octpowrimo

taken into consideration

over years of treatment, therapy, and exercise

reaction to my medical condition could be

taken as torture as

under orders from the quacks I’ve been

really put through the ringer…

even though , looking back, it was doing me good
