Cancer Ward

Rating: 4.8
Life, here hangs on a filmy thread of hope
Unskilled acrobats, making tight rope walks
With the deep chasm gaping below
Some too fatigued to feel the stress,
Empty beds bearing
the scars of lost battles,
Shaded rooms brooding in the gloom,
Pervading silence speaking mutely
of burnt hopes and dreams,
the morbid stillness occasionally broken by
stifled groans and whimpers.

A wonderful poem, inspiring me to write a poem on CCU where I reminded a few days after a heart attack.

A sad but very real situation. Deaths door is always opened it never closes for even a second. Always beckoning someone into its depth of darkness and despair. A slow death from cancer is very emotional. Maybe a cure will be found soon to eradicate its devastating effects. Hopefully it will happen in our lifetime Valsa. You described the situation with tenderness of mind and heart. My thanks to you for a touching write of the human condition.

So touching that I recollected a few more faces sharpened with intense pain beyond any description. The survivors are fortunate enough.In the dark chambers of loneliness and hopelessness, can we ever see the torch bearers of medical science to show a way out? A poem that matters a lot to us.
