Ribbons

I can’t breath
For the gauze stuck
in my lungs
Inhaling streamers
Exhaling tissues
It comes out of me
and hangs about my head and face
Even if you can’t see me
It’s a real miasma
The coursers of ribbons
Stuck around my face
Get stuck in its glue
It will get stuck to you
You’ll be saying it too
I can’t breath
For the gauze stuck
in my lungs
What a pretty sight I’ll make
When you cut into my lungs
Captive to you
You’re nobody’s friend
Invisible invader
Slipping asleep
I hear a far away voice
Over the wheels of the bed I’m on say
Between coughing
‘Oh Doctor, Please Save Her’
I’ve lost the will to fight,
I can’t cough anymore
Too many ribbons have been packed down my throat
What I thought was my last night
It’s the will of medicine to save me
I’d be on my knees if I was able to be
