cfs

there are so many ways to describe you...
although none is enough

you are a monster lying low
dormant at times, merely draining
at other times a beast intent
on destruction

oh how I wish I could be rid of you

you are a cage with bars unyielding
shrinking inward, and I am trapped
squeezed and desperate to escape
this feeling

oh how I wish I could be rid of you

you are poison in my veins
you fill my body with leaden weight
motion becomes an effort
for me now

oh how I wish I could be rid of you

sometimes, you have been my teacher
causing me to notice what I would never
have noticed without you, known
without you

but oh how I wish I could be rid of you

now.
