to be sick

there is nothing beautiful
or romantic
or desirable about being
sick
wheezing coughing fevers are not pretty and they are not cute
they are uncomfortable and painful
and they keep you up at night and they wreak havoc on your daily life

no one   wants to be sick

there is nothing beautiful
or romantic
or desirable about being
injured
broken arms sprained ankles fractured wrists are not lovely and they are not pleasant
they are sore and troublesome
and they keep you from doing what you love and from going about your life

no one   wants to be injured

there is nothing beautiful
or romantic
or desirable about being
terminal
cancer parkinson’s alzhimers are not enjoyable and they are not entertaining
they are miserable and degenerative
and keep you from the things that you love and the people that you love

no one   wants to be terminal

there is something beautiful
and romantic
and desirable about being
mentally ill     (it seems)
anxiety depression post traumatic are "fun"
they are traits and quirks
that give you character
and make you more interesting
and now     (it seems)

everyone   wants to be sick

except there is nothing beautiful or romantic or desirable about being
mentally ill
because
depression anxiety borderline are terrifying
and debilitating
and even lethal
they are excruciating
and invasive
and prevent you from living
and enjoying life
and

no one  should ever want  to be sick
