A letter to health

I used to know you…
I thought I did.
Sometimes I think you’re just playing hide and seek,
That one day I’ll find you,
Hidden in my closet
Or tucked in amongst the sheets.

Are you resting,
Rejuvenating – having a kip?
Or are you simply nervous –
Just one big chicken,
Too afraid to come out
And be of service?

I need you here,
I need you with me.
I need you to know this isn’t how it’s supposed to be.
I need you to say
From the bottom of your heart
That you’ll come back and find me.

And make it fucking snappy.
