poetry by j matthew waters

when time gets away


barely breathing
and unable to move
I imagine the sun
rising above
the endless hills

a simple incision
clears a path for a
laser-guided blade
to reshape my mind
and redefine my life

as I lay awakening
to blinding whiteness
the pain I once knew
vanished with time
that never existed

  1. I can relate to this and it’s so surreal, waking up from anesthesia, wondering where the time went! Hope you’re okay! Great poem!

  2. I love this one, Jdub….I listened to it again and again x x

  3. “vanished with time
    that never existed”
    dreamy 🙂

  4. This was beautiful and sad as well
