Coma - Poem by James Casey


Silently I slip into a coma
Where my heart will feel no pain
The sadness that once consumed me
Is about to end its holding reign

Quietly I lie and wait
Feeling life slip away from me
Alone I lay, alone at last
In my mind I'm in my past

There's no more feeling of a loss
For I have lost the will to feel
No more wasting endless time
Waiting for time to heal

You've been there oh so long
But you lost me long ago
Now I can sleep in peace my love
But, oh how, I loved you so

In the darkness of my self made hell
My heart has been locked away
Far from harm, so no one else
Can so easily take my heart today

Jim 1961

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Rejected by my only (at the time) love I was feeling sorry for myself and suicide wasn't out of the question
