Oh and when I first read this I was in Hawaii in 2017, and I admit this poem affected me so much I was angry at your poem bc how it invoked such an immediate response from me. As if your words were kicking down my doors to my heart. Thanks again and I'm glad I finally commented.
I was angry when I wrote this... its a hard pill to swallow, writing down the pain Cancer has caused and for me, not only my husband but my eldest child as well. I am very touched by your comment and I am glad you let me know... hugs you Milo
Ive read this awhile ago and it seems I need more time to process. But what I can say is that this is an emotional roller coaster bottled up that tears apart my memory of a relative who had cancer and who was dear to me. This poem destroys the walls I've hidden these memories of her so well into pieces and I had dreams upon dreams trying to internally put myself back together again without her since she was gone. This poem is healing and it continues to heal every time I log on this site and read this poem. Thank you.
