Sharp on the skins,
people scream,
people in pain.

Nipping slowly,

Eyes are wet,
eyes are crying.
People panic.

What lies below
and floating one
by one

from the hell
and everything
I hear says,

“thud, thud, thud.”
It hurts, it’s bad.

The absolute truth
about an epidemic
is maddening hell.

They wait for the
cure and it will
come later.

How soon?
How soon?

    will you please explain what you meant?

    • Hi there. Thanks for asking me about this. When I wrote “the absolute truth…maddening hell…” I am personally referring to inevitable diseases like cancer, diabetes, etc…those that hurt in the end not only physically but also emotionally (for the beloved departed). I’ve seen people suffer and die of cancer, people who also suffer and die of diabetes, etc. and I guess these are arrows that hit humanity every now and then, arrows that can eventually kill. I hope this explains the answer to your question… πŸ™‚
