The Conjunctivitis Writer

Updated on August 16, 2017

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

Pink Eye Writer
Pink Eye Writer

I sit here with pink in my eyes

Infected conjunctiva, swollen, painful tears I cry

I try to move around my eyeballs but the pain is still there

The bright light bothers my vision, seems blur when I stare

I sleep and awake with mucus sealing my lashes

Help, I am temporarily blinded by these dried yellow splashes

I draw for my keyboard to pen a new piece but I simply can't make out the words

Misspelling abundant because my eyes are blurred

Pink eye, Pink eye, please go away and never return

You are no good for a writer, who needs his eyes to earn


Now at the doctor he says it doesn't look well

My conjunctivitis is horrible, like I was possessed by a demon from hell

He gave me a couple pain killers and some eye drops and told me to go home

Get some rest and layoff from the bright lights and sterilize my home

Now it takes me a two days to pen a piece as simple as this

Because I have to verify each letter, even though a few may have missed

My writer friends in writer world, take it from someone who has been through it

Never get pink eye, your writing days will regret it

But I know I will soon be at 100 percent functionality soon

Until my vision fully returns, I will see you all at the next full moon.

      I don't think I've ever had it. Had friends with it, and I know they didn't enjoy that experience at all. Be well my friend.

      I've had this and scleritis episodes repeatedly in the last year although now I appear to have shaken it. I know how miserable the condition is. So sorry.
