I knew surgery was eminent
It had to be done
Was a must
No doubt about it
Plans carefully made
I dreamed
Of all the inspiration
Coming my way
While convalescing along
Thses hot Fall days
I was wrong
The block I ran into
Was much too strong
Pain had a face
As I tried to walk
It even had a tatse
As my feet lower
In an attempt to stand
An over powering tatse
Of rust
Invaded my taste buds
thought dormant
The Face Of Pain
Was there too
A sterile white, popcorned ceiling
As my anesthesia wore
I became alive
In pain beyond description
I beggede to die
The cold blooded, sterile ceiling
Spins in an unfocused
It's been ten days
Since my surgery
Inspiration had been deleted
From my thoughts.

By: William Bonilla

**Foot Note

The operation seemd a success
So far, so good, thank God
I am the proud owner
Of four brand new
Stainless steel, 2 1/2 inch screws

I've spent a great deal of time in hospital, William and even the agony of it can be inspiring( easy for me to say now, lol ) You have written this poem from your heart and it speaks to many.
I hope you continue to make a good recovery and grace the den with more of your wonderful poetry soon.

Did they put the "screws" that you lost back into your head??

Hope you will still be able to write "BEAUTIFUL" poetry...because poetry are for the screwed-up!!
