SCHIZOPHRENIA

"Doctor!
Doctor!
How is he?"

"Quite terrible, Miss.
He will not survive the night,
Probably not even the hour."

"What does he have?
Terminal cancer?
Pneumonia?
Cardiac Arrest?"

"No.
It is worse then all of those.
Even combined."

"Oh no! 
Can I see him?

"I imagine you can, Miss.
But that's the problem.
I'm afraid I can't treat him
Since I can't--"

"Doctor! Please tell me.
I love him. 
He's my boyfriend.
We have no secrets."

"Then you may wanna sit down.
Miss, I am sorry to inform you,
Your boyfriend is ailed with
A severe case of nonexistence."

I know a few people who are schizophrenic; it's a terrible illness and difficult to deal with. You've penned this well.

Thank you! It was hard to try and find the right balance between being serious and funny with it because schizophrenia is a terrible thing to deal with. Those who live with it on a daily basis are some of my heroes. Thanks again! <3 Tash
