• Something lurks
    Inside your body,
    Your mirrored life
    Slowly dwindling
    Away each day;

    You are frightened
    Of your future shortcomings,
    Terrified of what
    Tomorrow may bring.

    Your true self
    Trapped deep inside
    Vowing to one day
    Escape, fighting off
    The virus that lurks
    Within your soul.

    But that inanimate
    Illness will never
    Resign forever
    Because what is
    Lurking inside
    You is pain.
