A Poem

All of that stress

For nothing

All of that worry

The fear

The dread

Seeing myself in that hospital bed

Trapped once again-I don’t want it

Feeling anger

Heart-wrenching anger

Even though previously

That emotion had been

So foreign

The chest pain

The tears that wanted to fall

And I stopped them

Which brought its own kind of suffering

Being dependent on foreign substances

Toxins running through my veins

Without them

Knowing how quickly

I fall

And you tried to do that to me once again

Seeing you watch me stare into space


You release

At my agonizing face

Do you even care

How small my world has become?

As I keep popping these pills

Day after day

Stop watching me

Stop laughing at me

Just give me my pills, and leave me alone
