Underneath (Lament) By Marlene Mesot

Underneath (Lament) By Marlene Mesot

By Marlene Mesot

Underneath this haze,
Lying in a daze,
What’s that bright white craze?
Is this a new phase?

Voices faint, not clear,
Strange sounds beeping here,
Definitely no cheer,
Heightening my fear.

Unfamiliar shapes,
Stare at me and gape.
No this is not a wake!
Each new breath I take.

Can’t someone stop those bleeps?
I just need to sleep,
Wits about me keep,
I just want to weep.

Help me understand,
What is in this plan.
Uncertainty I can’t stand.
Someone take my hand.

NOTE: This poem was inspired by “Inside of Darkness” by fellow mystery author Trish Hubschman.
