Mutated cells

Dishevelled hopes crowd my once innocuous chamber.
Once a safe haven, now a cell of unintentional lies, and battered wises.

Many pray for a cure, I pray for them.
The shadows would be left in solitude while I pass to my maker.

A pure smile used to hide the pain and sorrow,j half hearted.
now all they see are discoloured teeth, chapped lips a smile faded and fake.

Some say there is beauty in dying but as I lay on my death bed
both hairless and breathless how can their be beauty in this.

The funeral is set red, purple and black,
the hearse will take me to my resting place no open coffin for me, please.

Mutated cells lead to church bells and last minute Goodbyes,
stay strong to all my shadows, I love you - for this is to be mine.
