I have never been able to explain

this feeling that infects

my heart and other organs

which soon my body rejects.

There may be no cure

and I am prepared to die

so if you must carry on,

at least tell me why.

To my grave I will retreat

and your secret shall rest with me

but your disease will carry on

since there is no cure that we can see.
