You are draining me of the life I would give freely.

An ache settles in my chest.
A breath I can never catch.
A weariness I cannot shake.

You are stealing my youth with every beat.

Hair limp, and stringy.
Skin sags off bones and fat.
Darkness pooling beneath vacant eyes.

You take so much from me,
and I work so hard to make sure it is only the good.
