Ails My Heart

by Erin
Written May 24, 2006

My fever rises
Burning skin against tired hand
Unsuspecting, unknowingly
My body temperature fluctuates
Dripping in and out of consciousness
Oozing out of bed into reality
But flowing like a raging river
Are reveries
Damn distracting daydreams
I lay my head to rest now
And shut my weary eyes
The recovery time for You is unknown
You still ail my heart
And God knows no drugs will heal me
Only time
Can relieve me of You
