You!

Lung cancer cell division, SEM

You!

you are

an infectious disease

you

plague

my every waking moment

thoughts of you

even creep in

to corrupt

my dreams

you

attack my cells

metastasizing

and multiplying

my system

cannot fight you off

and you spread

until

you and I

are one

no longer

distinguishable

or divisible

and

I

am

better

for

it.
