To My Body

You are my affliction
We are old live-ins

I hate you with new fury
You are the drug, you are fear, you are dark before light

Kicking and screaming
You leave me, sharp and tingling

To bleed, the pain a respite
Preferred to your uninvited quiet

When this spirit cowers
Claws drawn, teeth bared, eyes rolling back

A whispering over gaping well-wishers
you are staying, you are prevailing, you prove yourself

the way madness implores with terror in its eyes
to know that tomorrow holds your presence
