My haemotologist told me today That I'm pretty interesting I'm quite cheeky And I should write a book someday
As he was doing the bone marrow test I told him my stories Ridiculous stories from my life The hilarious one of how I crushed my toes when I was seventeen (don't worry, I do have toes today, but that's a story for another day) The enchanting, exciting tale of how I broke my arm As he was injecting into my bone I wanted to scream I merely told my story "I was jumping on the trampoline and i nearly jumped on this little boy's face-" "you jump on people's faces? Now I'm scared, girl!" "No, no. To avoid that I... I... I jumped back..." And then he started injecting And needles scare the hell out of me And I screamed "back and back and back and back...AND BACK! OH GOD, IS IT OVER YET?" I've dealt with so much pain, but I still can't handle needles. Cancer tries to set that fear alight, but I'm still afraid.
"No, not yet." I guess that's what my life is This endless amount of pain This constant betrayal from life "okay okay okay, I'll tell another story. Do you know I had a disease only 1% of the world gets when I was 5 and I nearly died."
He then told me some of his stories I didn't quite listen Because pain is unbearable He told me a story about bananas and orthopedic surgery... Then something about him wanting to be a singer, but him also miming in the choir like I used to I told him I could sing Then they wanted me to sing in the middle of that procedure No no I am not a girl of mediocrity If I sing, it has to be perfect No pain making me off key Then he said something about Neil Diamond
And then it was over And I didn't quite complete all my stories And he told me "You're a smart girl And interesting Write a book someday And don't give up your studies."
Six months of my life on hold Let's see how this goes Let's see how many stories I have to tell at the end of this I promise you now though My story isn't over And one day I will write something Something Inspiring And something good A classic Well, I'm hoping
Haha, a physicist writing a book? Let's see how this one pans out for me
