Presence

Standard

Here I lie
In my hospital
bed.
I feel their presence
They touch my
head.
Tubes enter my
body,
Nutrients keep me
fed.
They’re talking
together
I hear what’s
said
Please wait a while
longer,
I’m not yet
dead.

The wisdom of Experience

Standard

I thought I could
be loved.
But
It appeared that
there was
No-one who
would offer
Me
That gift.
They looked,
But
There was no
contact.
They smiled,
But
There was no
meaning.
They smirked and
faked interest.
I sneered,
I knew
their game.
I moved on,
enjoying my life
with the
wisdom of experience.
