Authors Note : Like my other poem, Inexorable, this is not meant to be a deep piece of work. It is about futility in the face of terminal illness


I am in you
you can't stop me
you can take
all the drugs you want
but you still feel me
eating you up
you can feel me
in your body
the drugs
they can slow me
but can't stop me
your fear
is my fuel
the more you fear me
the more virulent I am
you put your faith
in doctors and drugs
but deep inside
your true faith
lies with me
