When you feel something very strongly
As if it’s running in your blood
Does that mean it’s a part of you?
That it will always be a part of you?
Like we have the same blood group from birth to death.
Or does it mean
How a disease takes over your body
And sometimes leaves a trace
Changing you a bit in the process
That you feel in your blood
And sometimes leaves a trace?
I hope that’s not true.
Because if there’s one thing
That can’t run away from.
Is what’s in your blood.
