Jenny Santellano- A Poem

Come again?
I heard cancer,
but I wasn't listening
My ears were tuned
to the positive
It couldn't have spread;
it's in your head
You don't think
that, I thought
Those are just feelings
Prove it
Remember how you
insisted my real name
was Gwen?
Yeah, well, maybe
I believed you
back then,
in the days
of my imaginary
I mean,
there was a king,
a regal wedding,
the ruby ring
Then I dropped the
phone and reality
stopped by
for a quick visit
to remind me
that possibilities
are still possible
So I'm waiting but not
anticipating anything
more than I can 
You're my sister.
