Goose eggs,
hatch free,
bleeding out,
painting me purple-green
in side effect
to the exact medicines
meant to save me.

Bruises rise in number,
erasing my fair skin.

How quick
the cure,
an over-riding flood,
if I took one pill,
or thrice too many,
bleeding out complete,
drowning from within.

The math would be easier then,
one big wound, no flesh.

WOW...powerful piece.
So sad that many times, the treatment is worse than the ailment, and sometimes harder to watch.
