plasty is nasty

plasty is nasty

A Poem by Allen Smuckler
"

Been away a few days...this is why. It's all about seeing the light, folks.

"


thumping, pumping the ache and pain

was never right had nothing to gain

 

prowling, growling  robbed of  all strength

something amiss within arm’s length

 

knowing, growing learn from mistakes

trod with great effort all that it takes

 

finding, blinding white heat in my chest

look for some refuge a place to rest

 

frightening, heightening, fears abound

await the cold needle and caustic sound

 

swishing, wishing all I could stand

never felt much while in la-la land

 

ballooning, tuning as probe trisects

the team finds a way and resurrects

 

plasty is nasty I’m sure you’ll agree

but dawn’s early light is all I can see…

the plasty may look nasty but it feels like a bow pin decorating & clasping the existence if it can hold the smiles,the laughter,the melody of this life firmly.

Plasty may be nasty, But angina's not much finah
And if heart attecks
Your team forestalls or correcks,
Why, I think you might be somewhat less of a whinah!

(Only kidding here, but the only other rhyme for "angina" would have been out of place, here!)

Great word choices, and the lines go together so well, like a pulsing beat. Yes indeedy, plasty is nasty!

Scary stuff indeed - worse than a horror story because its real and you are in the middle of it. A strong poem though - well penned - and with that happy ending "Dawn's early light is all I can see"

Wowzers! I tried to imagine what on earth this could be about before reading it; now I see! Very blatant and valiant write, Dear! Xo.

Wow, talk about a powerful, gut wrenching message - you have the conversation cornered on the subject of healing with the use of man-made, life saving plastic in the form of a heart stent. Thank God for modern medicine and miracles!! Thank you for sharing your poignant message!!
