Reaching the summit

Is pure exhilaration

I am still weary

From the journey to this point

But joy is what we all need

What odd sensations

My tongue feels false in my mouth

Metallic, slug-like

Fingers and toes feel blunted

As if stubbed repeatedly

Chemo brain is real

Second guessing every move

Doubting what you said

Or what your thought you had said

Or when you thought you said it.
