A and E

(CASUALTY EXTENDED MIX)

Surrealistic walls were my
horizon
an oppressive ceiling my
opaque sky.

An angel came to comfort
me
she even affords me a candid
smile.
Within deep brown eyes
a sparkle
content my hand in her’s
to lie!

Her devotion with the
needle
took away the bloom from
my face.
Southern comfort in
“Middlemore”
The true meaning of
life’s race!

Many years I guess
I’ve wondered
if a moment like this
to transpire.
A dress rehearsal for
abolition
heavenly ticket to
hire?

My worldly domain surrounds
me
illusions of hopefully
“What is right.”
It took only an
instant
to convince me that
night!

Living is just a
predicament
in which one just plays
a role.
Yet here in
casualty
a halfway house to
console.

Ethical, malign ne’er
questioned
No! Discrimination
here.
Just an awesome labyrinth of
diffusion
within an earthly
pier!

A True story
Middlemore Hospital South Auckland New Zealand
I walked into there off the street with an heart attack.
I was a lucky one i guess?

    I am glad that you survived and told about in the form of poetry..A few years back I had something called TIA..The doctor said that it is the same as a heart attack but of the brain..God just protected me..It only lasted a short time maybe 30 to 40 minutes or less and I was not left with brain damage..Usually when a person has one a major stroke happens with a year of the TIA but a second stroke has not happened..Sara
