The Story Of Sven Reinhard

By TheGalacattopian All Rights Reserved ©

Poetry

Chapter 1

A young child

Smart and wise

A son any father would want


He did as he was told

Never questioned orders

A perfect little boy


His father, a military man

Manipulating his child

Telling him how to live his life


His mother, never there

Left when the boy was small

Never intending to return


The boy listened

Wanting to make his father proud

Looking for love and praise


“Become a doctor, make me proud”

Words echoed in his head

Mixing with the other voices


This boy was different

Not a normal child

His father knew


He heard voices that weren’t there

Schizophrenia

He didn’t understand


They scared him

Mocked him

Left him crying alone


If he was bad

His father wouldn’t hit him

Or shout


He would keep calm

And let the voices do the damage

Holding back the boy’s medication


Once the lesson was learnt

He got his medication

The drug that sent them away


Such a quiet boy

Hardly noticed

And never bothered


Grew up alone

No friends, no love

Becoming cold and calculating


Became the man he was told to be

A brilliant doctor and scientist

Working with the man he hated


Following in his father’s footsteps

Working under him

In a secret group


Experiments of science

Illegal and hushed up

Lead by the boy himself


A proud man

Enjoying what he does

Despite it being against his will


Many years pass

Young man now older

Now changed forever


A ‘Mad Scientist’

One to avoid

Ruthless and void of emotion


Schizophrenia

Insomnia

Paranoia


A mentally unstable man

Such a helpful doctor

But a heartless scientist


Plotting and scheming

Wanting to end a life

Wanting to end the control


He wants to be free

Control his own life

Have his own opinion


Sudden chaos from a failed experiment

People running everywhere

A perfect chance


A shotgun to the face

Ended his father’s life

His final freedom


Now all alone

Living in his old house

The lab all quiet


No known family

No one to bother him

Just what he wants


Experiments of science

Illegal and hushed up

Now done by one person


This is what he’d always wanted

To live his own life

Live how he always wanted


Helping people in the hospital

As a doctor

Hiding a dark secret


In that old lab

Where no one can see

Dark secrets are hidden there


He wants no one in his life

No one to bother him

Intending to remain alone for the rest of his life

Sarah Luongo: I'm a big fan of the format of the book- the concept of incorporating poems and within the story and sectioning off periods of the story with each poem.
