A prelude to death


So the pain is my friend now
Deep in my flesh it bites every cell
Screams are muted now….only lugubrious moans are leaving my lips

Sleep is only a prelude to death
So light is burning my eyes
Any sound splits my brain
getting choked with my own inside liquids
I howl into the vast horizon of my darkness:

Just give me one more day!

as if that would be enough …
as if that would bring death to my cancerous mucus
as if that would heal all the pus
as if that would be enough for one more miracle in my life

Just give me one more day
I prayed ….

Now, right now:
Just give me one instant death
