    A man in a black suit,
    surrounded by white walls.
    The world is dark,
    but in these halls fluorescent lights flicker.
    He can feel the sickness,
    he can feel the pain.
    He intends to take it all away.
    Entering the room,
    he approaches the bed.
    She is still.
    “I’ve come to take you home,” he says.
    She takes his hand,
    the suffering ends.
    Her world was dark.
    But now, all she sees is light.
