Chemotherapy

People never looked beneath the veil
Thus, they never know what exactly that means
Rumors say chemo cracks one’s nails
Then one will vomit all day
His face tinted a sickly green
They imagine monstrous machines billowing black smoke
Churning life out of the unfortunate bloke
Gears interlock and gnash one’s soul
At the end, he is reduced into a bald skeleton of despair
His heart shattered beyond repair
But Chemo is not like that

It looks much more peaceful than it seems
But torture comes and it burns one’s eye
To look at each IV drop of the Chemo fluid kill my love
It snakes into her blood and fractures her morale
One bone-breaking pain at a time

Semi-sweet and a little nutty. Introverted, socially awkward, but still easy-going and loves penning short legacies in poetry. Big on all things red, and passionate about music. Down-to-earth and enjoys short walks in mother nature's embrace. Smile people, today's going to be a great day. Try stuff you've never tried, go places, venture abroad and live a life you will remember.
