Doctors rushing everywhere
Yet am I left standing here
They attend to patients with care
But what am I? Am I clear?

No one notices the blood,
Or heard the screams
They don’t see me dying
Nor do they hear me crying

They rush past me
Everyone in a hurry
The nurses’ claiming patients
The doctors attend

What about me?
Can’t they see me bleed?
I got shot in the arm and leg
And have a bad bruise on the head

I could have internal bleeding as well
At any point I could drop dead
Are these doctors blind!?
I am a patient in need

If only they would slow down
They would see
That I am in need
They have to stop the bleeding

I take a seat, as I feel drowsy
All the hustle and bustle, so noisy
My eyes close as I slowly die
One tear falls out my eye

good poem :) i understand the feeling of being "invisible" but i like how you put that feeling into a different (and creative) situtation. the flow is good, and it makes the poem sound really neat :) i like it! check out some of my work if you could, i would love your opinion.
