I feel sick but not out of illness,

something much harder to comprehend.

A feeling I cannot explain,

it's something much worse than any physical

incapability i've ever obtained.

A sickness not any medicine can cure,

not even a vaccine can prevent.

A feeling of heinuous discouragment

and ghastly disgust.

such an abhorrent feeling and it dosn't feel just.

I feel sick, but not out of illness.

Somewhere deep within my soul

lurks an untaimable virus,

and all it does is grow.

Feeding on the pain I breathe in,

eaiting me from the core.

My unfortunate disamaze.

I feel sick, but not out of illness.

Through my eyes I saw it

and immediatley I began to feel.

It's quick and contagious

the most accurate of bacteria;

and the one I dread most.

I feel sick, but not out of illness

the kind we all must face

at some point, there are truly some things

we just cannot erase.
