the infection, the curse

Unwaveringly consistent
each day and night
it looms and dooms
with sadistic delight

The infection, the curse
is so stark and malignant
it’s chaotic and present
no, more, mockingly persistent

There’s a desire for clarity
for an explanation of motive
but the reality is this disease
has intricately taken control of

Each person; and that’s the real horror
that we face each day
that the brothers and sisters who surround us
will inevitably go their own way.
