Ripping through your body, like a hot blade

Nothing will stop me, until I’m ready to fade.

I’ll encompass all you are, until I’m gone

Stopping you, despite your need to carry on.

I’m physical, you feel me when you rest

Or upon movement, I will manifest.

I’m with you constantly, night and day

During work, or when it’s time for play.

Whatever’s on your mind, I’ll embrace that too

There are no limits to how I might affect you.

I’ll sweep in, and swipe you hard and fast

And can’t tell you how long I will last.
