dreaming cancer

creepy sensation
beneath my chest’s skin so smooth
like little fingers

they push outwardly
trying to break from inside
i dream alien

briefly a stark sight
before i wake in a sweat
mouth ready to scream

no, not my body
it will not be your haven
to ravage at your will

One response to “dreaming cancer

  1. I admire the way that you are able to express your feelings about cancer in such vivid and lovely poetry. It really makes us think about the brevity and beauty of life.
