I look and I see

the viruse inside me

I touch and I feel

the fever I'm so ill

I listen and I hear

The pounding in my ear

I sniff and I smell

the sickness of my cell

I cough and I taste

the cold stuck like mase

...In my mouth

   it's so strong

   as it sits

   all day long

   wish it would

   go all away

   never come back

   never in a day.
