To the saints in purple scrubs,

You made the pain less.

Even though I had a tube in my arm,

And a wrong in my blood,

You smiled.


Saints in purple,

Sent straight from heaven,

You made the pain lessen.

Saints in purple,

We were not new to the floor,

But I was new to the chair.

I knew the floor and the people,

But not the pain first hand.


Saints in purple,

Who made the pain leave for a moment,

They knew my name,

Yet, I don't remember theirs.


Red band on my hand,

Infusion comes down from my IV.

Saints in purple,

Just as awesome as the numbing spray.

They made the pain go away for a moment of the day.


Saints in purple,

Little bits of the sun's rays,

You made my day.

"Why do you keep hiding behind your mask,
When even the scars formed by your mistakes
are you own constellations?"

This was beautiful and so gracefully written.

All my life they let me know
How far I would not go
But inside the beast still grows
Waiting, chewing through the ropes
Who are you to change this world?
Silly boy
No one needs to hear your words
Let it go
Carnivore, carnivore
Won't you come digest me?
Take away everything I am
Bring it to an end

I can't believe how good this is! You did an awesome job and are a great human being.
