Locked In

“How are you feeling today?” 

They don’t hear
set about their tasks:
constant moans
this and that,
idle chat
I can't bear their drones

They don’t hear,
don’t care:
I’m locked in this shell
awake, aware,
unable to move or talk
since the pain
burned through my head.

I lie in this bed, paralysed,
wired to a fear-filled machine,
moments clicked
a switch flicked,
my locked-in scream...
“Don’t do it. Please.
I’m still here! Trapped.
How are you today?'

    Jeanette, I can definitely feel this person's angst while reading this poem of yours. You surely bring these emotions across brilliantly. Thank you for stopping by on my side of the world as well *hugs* Wilma
