a prayer to be healed

the sickness of forgetfulness

has left me delirious

the fever has invaded my being

my head swims heaving seas of anxiety, excess

I shiver with desires and fears

emotions and feelings leave beads of sweat on my brow

tightness in my chest

an aching in my stomach

my heart races

my eyesight blurred

my hearing confused

my appetite swings from gluttony to disinterest

the cancer grows

hoped for and envisioned happiness, this is not

it is a delirium,

a profound stupor of mythic proportions

a disease of human condition

an illness of the senses

an infection of the perceptions

these illnesses of the mind

an innocent host of this virus

they are destroying my body

let me please stir from these disturbing dreams

and refrain from them forever
