It is surprising what one person can do to make your world turn upside down.
I didn't mean for it to be so sentimental, but oh well.

The ease of the burn
And the numb settles in after moments.

My medicine exists only within them.
within those luscious walls
My cancer grows deeper
as the months and years increase

The days are spinning by,
I grow weak
I get sicker
I fall faster
And I lose it.

Where is my cure?
Where has my numb feeling gone to?
Why do they not see it?

I will wait in my hospital bed
And wait for the nurse to return with you.

Wait for however long you must test me.

I will wait day by day
pretending I can still call your arms my bed
call your eyes my conscience.

and wait for my phone to ring
and to hear your lovely voice.

To hear your lovely voice say
Everything will be okay.
