COMA

Headlong in a plane crash

Stuck here for 6 months long

I’m trapped within my head

Brain dead, someone said

 

Been listening to the same old song

On repeat for far too long

Why can’t I move my arms?

I feel, no real pain

 

Life’s a coma, coma machine

Every day’s the fucking same

Where’s my friends? Where’s my phone?

Where’s my girl? I’m all alone

 

Shallow relatives, bedside vigil

Empty stares, no one cares

Night janitor licks my balls

Bed bath, incessant rash

 

Not responding to a stimulus

Lying here on my own

Confined to my damaged brain

Constant beeping in my head.

(M. Carr)
