Nothing Left To Fear

I’ve got my IV

Slow, slow-dripping that cure

But I don’t feel a thing.

This wretched disease

Doesn’t care what I want

Or what I need.

It is a demon locomotive

Churning through my body,

Daring me to live.

So I take the borrowed time

And the tiny pleasures I have left

To make a piece of this world all mine.
