Cancer (a poem)

My cells are turning

against me

Civil war is being fought

Within the confines

of my skin

 

A deep dissatisfaction

is crawling

All over me

As I realise

Cancer

Has broken in

 

I faint

I breathe in gasps

My optimism

Is struggling

To last

Another hour

 

Calculations

Prognostications

All in vain

Ally with a mystery

Wrapped in infinite pain

 

The calling 

To the universe

Beams out

From my soul

Night and day

 

Reaching, reaching desperately

All the same

 

Cancer, am I anonymous?

Or do you even know

My name?
