#DBlogWeek 2014 – Poetry Tuesday

“This year, Diabetes Blog Week and TuDiabetes are teaming up to bring out the poet in you! Write a poem, rhyme, ballad, haiku, or any other form of poetry about diabetes. After you’ve posted it on your blog, share it on the No Sugar Added® Poetry page on TuDiabetes, and read what others have shared there as well!”

Body empty and heavy

Six point two millimoles



Heart beat echoing

Brain and body disconnect

Having a hypo
