If I am the feather

If I am the feather you are the wings

If I am the kite you are the wind

If I am the smile you are the lips

If I am the words you are the voice


But I am a person

And you are a disease

We share the same stage

But inherently contradict

As you grow I shrink

As I grow you rage


We are both constantly fighting

Interlocked in a cycle of destruction

Intent on the death of the other

The only difference is:

I am the body and you the disease.

You need me

I don’t need you.
