A doctor tries to relieve tension that builds in her heart…

 

The doctor felt the frustration,

the woman did not fully grasp

the reality of the situation,

she was a heavy drug user,

more of a drug abuser,

and her child would die,

the doctor knew it,

and she really wanted to cry,

she decided to meditate a bit,

so she’d sit,

to give her mind and body

some time to calm down,

relaxation is what she found,

however, shouting came through the door,

in the midst of her musings,

disrupting her, it was confusing,

a nurse came in, wide eyed,

searching for words,

but her reality was tied,

she wanted to tell the doctor

that the child died.

    A heart breaking poem depicting something which is far too common these days. Well done.

    I felt the sadness too. This is very intense. You did a good job capturing these emotions. “The doctor felt the frustration.” She wanted to cry.” The doctor wanted to relieve tension in the baby’s heart. To see a precious newborn die like that because of the mother’s negligence and drug addiction is devastating. Excellent work.
