Vanquished by Blair Gaulton

Vanquished
Sadness’ cocoon;
stems from low blood sugar.
It is a boon;
when it is vanquished.

Wondering by Blair Gaulton

Wondering
Watching the clock tick;
wondering
what will be my blood sugar’s
next trick?

This Night’s Battle by Blair Gaulton

This Night’s Battle
Body freezes;
cannot sleep.
Mind seizes;
chance to fight back.
Blankets ‘n’ heat do not work;
irked;
must be blood sugar.
Yes, it is low.
quickly eat something;
I warm up very slow.
At least now I know.

Blood Sugar’s Dive: Safety First by Blair Gaulton

Blood Sugar’s Dive: Safety First
My blood Sugar suddenly;
took a deep dive.
Eating something;
testing ‘n’ waiting.
Not going to go near the car
until it is more than safe for me to drive.
Better to take my time
Many lives on the line;
Not only mine.
Safety first.

Curmudgeony Butterfly by Blair Gaulton

Curmudgeony Butterfly
Blood sugar suddenly dives;
I feel like a curmudgeony butterfly;
out of place;
don’t really enjoy this space.
