Knitrias Project Initiative: Short Story Contest/ LEUKEMIA

LEUKEMIA

Dreading each day thinking it'll be your last,
On a once happy life a dark shadow is cast,
The list of things left to do seems so vast,
But your time in this world is ending too fast.

How can one live knowing death is so near,
How can one fight if they're only filled with fear,
How can one stand knowing the outcome so clear,
That tomorrow they might lose all they hold dear.

A disease that kills you from inside out,
It nibs at your will to live filling you with doubt,
Shattering your spirit with body aches throughout,
Only a deadly silence echos each time you shout.

It poisons your body before it can be diagnosed,
It spreads rapidly making it impossible to dispose,
Your organs eventually start to decompose,
Leaving you in the final state of an eternal comatose.

You are not the only one who will ache,
Your loved ones don't cry in front of you for your sake,
But once they leave your room their facade begins to break,
Seeing you wither thinking it's somehow their mistake.

Who to blame, is it coincidence or cruel fate?
In your God, should you now trust or hate?
In your mind this is a continuous debate,
Seemingly useless as you near your due-date.

An inner conflict starts to rise,
Is the hope of being cured nothing but lies?
For the sunrise you long and each sunset you despise,
Slowly trying to accept the fact of your nearing demise.

This is a disease that fills me with fear each time I think or hear about it.

I love the poem you made. Very emotional, very respectful and real.

Concerning the contest however I am in a conflict right now, a huge one.
I am not sure if I can consider this poem a short story, but there are 2 other things that broke the rules, it is not enough words, only 251. But also I cannot really see the ending as an obvious open ending.

If you would like to edit and change it, I will gladly consider it a valid participation, like it is now, I believe it would be unfair to other contestants. I am sure some of them could also write amazing poems, but the content is a contest about short storys, I'm afraid I cannot see this as a valid contribution.

I am sorry, I am just trying to make it a fair contest for everyone, I hope you understand.

I love it this part!

Who to blame, is it coincidence or cruel fate?

Seemingly useless as you near your due-date.

It's art in letters .


Good luck in the contest.

Great participation, @KaySmile44!! But you need to check a detail in the number of words in the rules of the contest. It must be a minimum of 500 words. Maybe If you find suitable you can re-work this piece by editing your post.

Best wishes for life and projects!!
