Butterfly Kissed by Jacob Karan
"Fifty Shades of red blend
Forming one droplet of blood
One Jake with 3 million type ones strong
Grams of Carbohydrates,units of insulin
effort of exercise calculations,sleepiness,
life's a balance
Blood Glucose monitoring system to control the chaos
"Tch" the sound of the lancet penetrating my finger
"Deet" the sound of the glucose meter consuming the droplet
"Deet Deet Deet" the analysis readout of my balance... a number to make inner peace ensue
I am the director of this balance. Which thankfully used to be so naturally automatic is now..,. calculated and mechanic
The test strips have a butterfly on them. I would wonder, Why?
I believe they are as soothing as a butterfly kiss and equally gentle"
