Cutting the Cancer Out

Take the knife,

slide it across the flesh,

reach inside and

cut the cancer out.

Reach inside and

cut out the “I hate you’s” the

“I don’t love you’s” and the

black masses that are taking over your heart,

your soul, your light.

Cutting the cancer out,

Escaping from the past and never looking back,

Smashing the looking glass and

hoping for the best.

Separate yourself from the evil,

remove that empty feeling, creeping through your body.

Don’t turn around and don’t stop now.

Because

Once you’ve started,

you simply can’t go back.

A Revelation Like No Other

One day, she opened her eyes

and everything made sense.

The tossing and turning, endless nights spent

battling demons she had no clue

existed.

That’s when she learned,

the monsters weren’t in her closet,

they weren’t under her bed or hiding behind the shower curtain.

They walked among her,

silently lurking,

waiting for just the right moment to

attack.
