A Poem by joshua deathdealer


My throat burns,
but not as bad as the regret
of missing conversations.

When the end materializes in front of you,
its not what's on the other side that matters.
For me its the ones I'm leaving behind.

In death as I left them in life.
I could never get it right
and now I'm out of time.

It is not with joy or a rightful honor
that I step into the unknown with..
It is in throes of terror.

My failures and weaknesses are forced flashed
into my final, earthly thoughts.
They build and clog my neural passages.

Weighing heavily in my chest,
suffocating my already charred lungs
a patient, pending who I am to become.

You'll have to forgive me.
I am just a lowly creature,
my sins scrape the skies.

Malignancy is the tendency of a medical condition to become progressively worse. Malignancy is most familiar as a characterization of cancer. A malignant tumor contrasts with a non-cancerous benign tumor in that a malignancy is not self-limited in its growth, is capable of invading into adjacent tissues, and may be capable of spreading to distant tissues.

Malignancy can also apply to emotions. Either excess fear or excess anger can kill you just as surely as cancer.
