My body betrayed me. 

Allowed pain into my bloodstream

Shut off all the safety switches

Now we’ve been compromised. 


It tells me there’s a fire below 

So I open up the windows and try to signal for help 

It tells me there’s ice above

So I duck and cover 

It pulls all the alarms and panics in its own chaos 


And When the dust settles

I expected a sinister virus to have started this sickness 

But I find nothing but my own body to blame.
