Before I Went Under

By: Stormbird Throneshaker

Page 1, Poem written 03/02/2013

You know, I wondered

I wondered said I

Before I went under

under the knife.

~

Ten, nine, eight,

seven, six, five

Don't remember four

before closing my eyes.

~

Hours turned to seconds

while I was asleep

Before waking up

from out of the deep.

~

A voice calls me

it's time to rise

I gaze about groggily

much to my surprise.

~

One, two, three

minutes have passed

An angel said centuries

I learned at last.

~

So this was death's sting

its anesthetic power

I remember the shot

Just not the hour.

~

It's like preparation

before a surgery

By the time it begins

it's over you see.

~

For those still alive

choose your physician well

for in the thereafter

it's heaven or hell.

~

You know, I wondered

I wondered said I

Before I went under

under the knife.
