The Patient You Leave Suffering

I can feel the nerve along my face.

Like Lava as it trails along my curves.

Behind my ear…..trickling in it. Whispering pain.

Liquid. Itchy. Swollen. It feels, but they see nothing.

My hearing drastically affected but they say “it’s normal.”

My jaw clenching hard to maneuver. Locks. Firey ache to the bone.

Tongue..Heavy, Fire Ants, Numb.

Drooling on myself.

Cheek branded, I’m owned by IT now.

Eyebrow and lid weighed down.

Vision is less than acceptable. Like a bottle of champagne, Pushing with pressure.

Sinus says it’s inflamed but they don’t see.

Eating, Singing, Talking, Breathing.

Facial Nerve Pain, you really are trying to leave me with nothing.
