Serenity Severance


Poem Commentary

Oh ... do you have an appointment? Please take a seat ... We'll call you when the Doctor can see you.

Serenity Severance

I was on my way home ... or at least I thought I was,
The last thing I remember was waving goodbye.
I left the party alone ... my sight blurred, a little buzzed,
As I ran to my car, under the thundering skies.
I was driving thru town ... when it started to pour,
The skies opened up, the wind began to roar.
I crashed thru trees ... impaling branches, glass and steel.
I heard sirens in the distance and prying at my door.

I didn't feel any pain ... as paramedics scrambled,
And was lifted on a stretcher into an ambulance.
I felt the trickling of ...  my life leaving my body,
As they raced me over to "Serenity Severance".
The Infirmary sat ... behind tall iron gates.
Far up on a hill at the end of Raven's Road.
An old, cold, dark building ... with a history of madness,
The stories of nightmares, locked behind it's stones.

Bandaged and barely breathing ... I'm readied for surgery.
The Doctor and Nurse both gathered at my side.
Smiling and grinning as ... they reach for their scalpels.
Still bloody from the last helpless soul that had died.
I stare into their cold ... evil, soul stealing eyes.
While the Doctor shows me the sharpness of his blade.
Running his finger lightly ... over its edge, drawing blood,
Dropping drips into my eyes, splattering my face.

He brings the blade up to his lips ... licking it slowly.
Savoring each of my screams and feeding off my fear.
He cuts off all my bandaging ... exposing open wounds.
Slowly inserting his pointed fingernail, digging into tear.
The Doctor lets out a laugh ... and the nurse licks her lips.
As she fingers her nipples and lifts the hem of her dress.
She gets sexually aroused ...  by my agonizing pain.
Lost in the throws of orgasm as I cry out in distress.

The Doctor raises his scalpel ... to watch me cringe in fear,
He ignores my pleas of agony, and starts slicing off my ear.
I scream again so loudly ... he pulls out and cuts off my tongue.
Places it between his teeth, chews it like a wad of gum.
I pray for death to take me ... save me from this insane demise,
Unconciousness forsakes me, as it is then that I realized.
That I had already died ... and it is here I will forever dwell.
Cause, "Serenity Severance" is not a hospital -
It is my damnation,
~ My Eternal Hell! ~

knight, This extraordinary poem left me on the edge of my seat, feeling as if I was watching the latest blockbuster horror film. Even Poe cannot get to me like this one. The creative quality is ingenious. ginga



Wow Ginga! Thank you so very much my friend! I am truly humbled by your praise and comments. I don't think I've ever received such a remarkable comment. Again, Thank you so much! :) Ken

Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.
