Just a little thing I thought of when reading a poem by Claire Pollard called 'The Cancer-Dream'
Also playing about with the font, hoping it looks okay.
(also, it's a working title :P )
Enjoy :D

Love
going handinhand with
Death
Hurts me
endlessly
eternally
I feel it’s claws scratching at my heart
Squeezing so tightly it might
burst
Tears flow in desperate
rage
My hands bundle into fists
Punching walls, doors
Lashing out at the nearest person …
or sobbing
uncontrollably

on their shoulders
Love
Intensifies every emotion
Leaving me a helpless
Wreck
When I need to be
Strong
