The wait

Waiting for a while
Hospital nurses
Waiting room
Doctors name
In big letters
On doors
Patients names
In small letters
On a file
In a waiting room
Full of patients
Waiting and waiting
In a corridor
Full of closed doors
Full of people
Waiting for an answer
Waiting to resume a life
Waiting and waiting


The door opens
A Ray of darkness
In this somber corridor
Full of patients waiting
The nurse appears
She calls my name
Startled with doom
I stand up
The waiting is over


Cancer he said
The c word
The dreaded
The bastard
C word
Enters the confusion
Of my mind
Like a grenade
My web of thoughts
Leaving me
In a blurred silenced
Inner world
