To Exhaustion

Taken from
Painting by Angie Lua

I feel your weight on my body
But I cannot see you
I cannot know where to find you
You reside my shoulders
Weaken my arms Limit my legs
Drown my chest Pull down my head
Stiffen my bones
And you run in all my blood vessels
You are as a disease
Creeped in unnoticed
A surprise when I woke up
I want to know where you are
So I can tell you to
Leave me!
My back longs for the bed
Yet I know that the bed will not suffice
I told Brain to ignore you
But Brain will give in soon
And Heart will do the same too
Leave me!
Leave me now!
