Cancer


Mommy filled me with lies.
Daddy ran away to hide.
Sister stuck at bay waiting for her sailor to come home one day.
Brother trapped in a world all his own.
A town that is dark and grey,
Emotionally draining.
Exhausting.
Ears burn at every corner.
Chew before you speak is a phrase that is extinct.
History of a retched past are just beneath the eyes.
Love is stored in a box six feet under,
Memories as well.
Oh what happened to the glory days?
Pictures that held a look, a laugh, a moment thrown into chambers.
Brick fill the gaps of the holes in the walls.
'We all sound monotone'
'We are one now'
To be a hero or extraordinary is frowned.
The asylum is your new home.
White building, white walls, white.
If that won't make you crazy I don't know what will.
When will my cancer go away?
