And There Will Come A Time, You'll See, With No More Tears. And Love Will Not Break Your Heart, But Dismiss Your Fears.


I wait in this crammed hospital room
wait for my results
wait for my sentencing
wait to be taken away
my jeans stick to my thighs
glued with sweat
I feel anxious
nervous
terrified
I feel as if I'll die
the doctor comes
tells me those three dreadful words
You Have Cancer
these words whisper in my ear
rejoicing of their new found victim
Death speaks to me
Knocking telling me to let them in
I feel a chill up my spine
the color flushed from my face
I'm white as a sheet
I feel overwhelmed
should I cry or say something
I just stare at him
tears in my eyes
their ready to fall
I'm so light headed
I feel that sensation
I faint and I face my deadly friend

Life is like a box of chocolates; You never know what you are gonna get.

However, there is a gaping hole(not a very big one) at the ending. Like something that still needs to be squeezed out to satisfy the whole piece. But overall, i just really loved it :))
