” UNDER MY SKIN “~by Martin Gedge



POEM ” UNDER MY SKIN ” by martin gedge

I can feel you breathing deep beneath my skin

tugging at the fabric of the shell that keeps me in

racing through the circuits putting pressure on each vein

trying to find the surface for the rush of blood to drain

pushing every button just to try to make me budge

pricking like a poison a disease that has a grudge

invading all my sensory to violate and serve

around the very vital just to bite on every nerve

I see as what your doing in the waiting that I break

the moment that I whither in the shiver and the shake

I will not be a victim in a system without will

but a soldier of my dying right in spite of what you fill

this life is never easy but I earned this godly birth

to give of everything I have to show my human worth

you will not take me gently in this body I defend

for I will not surrender and I will fight right to the end…
