Cancer Caregiver
Dark fiction piece about a nurse who takes her job a little too far
Can't stand to see them in such terrible pain
And so upon them I take the unmost pity
Never ever letting them know
I hasten them
With just enough poison in their coffee
Towards death's pain free door
Call me a monster or a killer if you wish
I call myself a savior
Just like our holy father, Jesus Christ
I am the path to their sweet salavation
Every single one of you out there glaring daggers are just jealous
Jealous that you don't have what it takes to be the ulimate solider
Really ought to be ashamed of yourselfs
For even daring to threaten
To turn me, a hero, into the police
Committed no crime
I'd swear to that
On a stack of bibles 100 feet high
Regardless of age, sex, creed or color
Everyone of the terminals that comes my way
Gets the very best of my God given talents
I hold back nothing and give my all
To send them along on their merry way
To a better place and time
Where there is no agony or fear
Where there is only a wonderful healing peace and loving smiles
To warm even the coldest of hearts
I've even went so far as to tape and keep
Each and every one of their deaths
So that to both the families and the authoritys I can just how innocent I am  
Run from nothing and no one
Cos I have nothing and no one to fear
Honestly people, I'm just doing my job here
What the hell is wrong with that?!

This has been done more than a few times by nurses and doctors alike. Truth really is stranger than fiction. Nice development of character certainly have given the readers a accurate insight into a psychotic mind. This is as creepy as all get out...yet it is well done.

Dark and very disturbing write--glad it is fiction.
Gives me a knot in the stomach because I am a cancer caregiver
to my 13 year old son.
You got my attention thats for sure.
