Feeling ill…

Touched by an ailment my eyes could not see coming. 

It crept slowly, slowly toward, then inside me. 

Now my back is aching, 

I have a sore throat

And one nostril stuffy while the other runny. 

Feeling ill- 

Health stolen away.

By some agent of The Devil or a poison in the water green-lighted by the government.  

Where’s any probiotic,

My panacea,

A saving grace?

This pestilence has left me feeling unsafe.

Heart anxiously pumping

Combined with

Ponderous, hyphenated breathes. 

Feeling ill-

I want to sleep, but I can’t. 

Feeling ill… 

I am freezing at my core, 

While sweating to death.
