Poem: Nebulous

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Article Summary

"Nebulous" is a poem I wrote for a word prompt.

It depicts those moments when an illness progresses & causes pain.

Everything becomes fuzzy & unclear.

It's like a nebulous concept on the quality of life.

"Nebulous meaning ~ editorialwithvocab"



His thoughts are hazy
drifting in and out,
trying to find words
to explain the pain that is overtaking
every inch of his body,
but nothing comes to mind,
he’s unable to focus.

It’s robbing him blind,
leaving behind tiny bits
as it crumbles his quality of life,
hiding it somewhere
among the haze.


Vague and nebulous is the beginning of all things,

but not their end.

— Kahalil Gibran
