Feelings

Poem by Spike Milligan

There must be a wound!
No one can be this hurt
and not bleed.

How could she injure me so?
No marks
No bruise

Worse!
People say 'My, you're looking well'
.....God help me!
She's mummified me -
ALIVE!

    Very emotional and spoken from his heart. Sums up the very depth of his depression,(Report)Reply

    Poem directs a solid thing - injured without lnjury.The poem may be edited by the poet a little to make the injury more sweet.(Report)Reply

    Spike Milligan always had a unique sense of humour which carries in this poem. One should see the funny side of life, and in the ordinary Spike found the absurd fascinating.
    One should think of the Goon Show as the more absurd version of this poem.
    Humour is a great restorative, particularly to something treated so seriously as spurned affection (which I assume is the object of this poem) .(Report)Reply

    The serious side. Yet he can still conclude with something of a laugh. Wonderful. Paul.(Report)Reply
