My body was
Overheating
I felt
Very helpless
It was like
A sahara desert
Had surrounded me
Heat was consuming
Ever part of me
My core temperature
Was boiling
Beyond capacity
I felt like
I was trapped
In an airtight
Container
Closed so tight
No steam
Could escape me
I could not
Calm down
My rage
It was taking over
Every part of me
I tried
To walk
It off
But each step
I took
Felt like
I was fighting
Against
An invisible hand
Constantly
Weighing me down
Making it hard
For me
To stand
Under the pressure
It was
Forcing
My head down
As if I was not
Worthy to rise
My legs were
Buckling
Thoughts kept
Repeating to me
It is better sit
Before becoming
One with the pavement
But my stubbornness
Was on Ten
Telling me
To keep walking
Get somewhere safe
To Rest
You can not
Stay here
Miserable
Sleepy
Nauseous
Drinking water
To settle
My stomach
And
Blasting
The A/C
On the
Lowest setting
In my face
Was freezing me
But I dare not
Turn it down
It was helping
Just a little
I kept whispering
To myself
You can
Do this
So
I bowed my head
Slightly
Squinted
My eyes
Keeping them
Wide enough
To see
My way through
The back streets
To get me
Home
So I can
Sleep off
This siege
Taking my body
Through changes
Sleep will be
My reset
On my
Perspective
Equilibrium
And
Energy
So I can
Start over
Full strength
And stronger
