AUTHOR NOTES: Because I’m disillusioned with the way Cordy has been treated and left lying in a coma and I think our heroine would deal with being left in a coma in one of two ways. She would either despair and want to die; or she would want to kick angel’s ass and scream at him to get her out of this!!
A LIVING DEATH
For that is what it is;
Looking down from above I see myself unable to move; yet fully aware;
He leaves me trapped inside this empty vessel;
Bodily functions controlled by tubes and wires;
He comes to talk to me;
In his own mind he still has me;
Every day he pulls the chains that bind me to this hell a little tighter;
Wait just a little longer Cordelia;
We’ll get you back; he says
Ignoring the one solitary tear that slowly travels its way down my ice cold face;
Back to what I want to scream; but the words lie unspoken in the back of my throat;
One heroic warrier – but not for me
It’s not his fault; not really; he is nothing but a pawn in their games;
Pull the plug Angel;
Be kind and kill me for I am already dead.
