"Virus"


Virus


You’ve moved in like a mistress, 

unwanted houseguest, paramour

putting a marriage into distress.

More than anyone bargained for,

freeloading on the betrothed,

stealing their embrace. Wait.

Breath you take away, know

that a debt will accumulate––

needing someone to survive––

opportune partner won’t last

forever––you’ll need to revive.

Soon desperate for a recast

and there’s a limited supply.

It’s ill-fated––your modus operandi.
