parasite latches on
tight grip until I choke
nutrients I need fall out
sallow face begins to show
at the will of this tiny beast
i bow and work and strive
whispers in my ear once small
now louder than my breath
soon it will be an outward sign
one i tried to hide
for now i waste away in bed
with you still by my side
this parasite i'll name my friend
acceptance at its best
nothing lasts until the end
worth and size of life is lessed
nothing is real
can we just move on
morning has come
out i walk into the rain
