you've got my heart on lockdown

choking on the same air I've been breathing all my life

and just when I think

it's finally safe to breathe again

you're laced with the oxygen like an airborne disease

you're the kind of virus that makes 

blood boil and

heads hallucinate

you're the kind of flu that makes

people forget what it feels like 

to live without you

but you and me,

we're quarantined

because I wouldn't want you
running through the veins

of somebody else.
