I never seen a poem in this form before so I really liked it that I got to see a problem inside someone else's head. Is this something that you are going through?

Thank you. I did an extention of a 6 word novel project my creative writing class did. And no I personally am not going through this. I sat down with my great aunt about a month ago who had spleen, liver, and spine cancer. We spoke about what she was going through at the time, and I wrote it based on that.
