'Hospital Sadness' - Poem by Nick Bell

As I lie around in this bed
Absolutely bored out of mind
I have sad thoughts in my head
I wish that these sad thoughts were left behind
My eyes are flowing with tears
Like a river bank flowing with water
My mind right now is full of fears
Mentally, I am not at my best.

I am
Lonely
Bored
Depressed
Sad

Th is is not where I belong
I want to tell the nurses so long
This is making me sad
When I am out of here I will be glad
I am lying around yearning for the days of home
Where I am free to roam
And not to confirm to one place
I wish time was moving at a fast pace

I miss my friends
I miss my family
I miss everything


Poet's Notes about The Poem

I've written this poem when I was in the hospital. It was a depressing place for me to be.

    Very profound and well-written poem about the hospital blues most patients have to endure. You wrote it so effectively and honestly in brief but strong lines. (Report) Reply
