Silence is like hot oil
It stings and flares up
Burning the bodies of the people around them

The hot oil burns in my eye
I blink back the oil, absorbing pain 
The oil will not fall on innocents

Ugly black sickness on my chest
Forcing its way down my throat
Fake cherry mush made of widow’s tears
It stains my light blue dress
Sore bruises on my breast
The pain will not fall on innocents

Mother at my side
Not a tear, just frozen pain in her eyes
Father hugging me tight
No understanding, full of “whys”
Siblings awake to angry silence
The puppies even feel it, bewaring Mom’s wrath
The pain will always fall on innocents
Such is the cancer of illness
