Take everything I have ever made and run it through me. Let me soak up
every bitter emotion. Let's pray I make it to the hospital, so as doctors and
nurses “tsk” and task I can discover that I don't want to be
stitched back up, I don't want to be saved. No.
I want to be made into
an example.
“Look” they will say,
“Come see.”
“Look.”
“Come see.”

I love this poem. I wish it were a bit longer. Perhaps in time you could add to the poem so we get to know more about your architect.

Matt,
Can certainly write poetry. Found his writing very intelligent and thought provoking. A little on the dark side, but that's part of life; the world isn't "peaches and cream", especially with the world situation today. Keep on writing Matt.
