Blood pressure

I eat a little
I eat too much
I drink and drink
Only water is allowed
I wake up at midnight
I take a reading
The numbers persist
It is too high
It is too low
Headaches and
Heat rash
Cold wave of shivering
Sleepless nights continue and
The numbers persist
Bleeding vessels are choking in
The pressure of thought rush is
Whirling in a tortured mind
The numbers persist
In the vanishing night.
