I had an abundance of heat
Overwhelm me
It felt like a rampant inferno
Engulfed me
I could not cool myself down
Internally
A major shutdown ensued
As my body’s natural cooling system
Went on the blink
All I could do was wish for
Some type of relief
Some rain
A little monsoon
Maybe
Or
A huge block of ice
So I could
Eat
Sit on
Lay on
Until the sun went down
Or
All the pain it inflicted on me
Subsided
And
There was no more
Bodyache
Headache
Double vision
Lightheadedness
Overexertion
You name it
Damn it
I can not
Take much more of this
It must stop
So mark this day
Today is the day
I am putting the sun
On notice
And
On the top of the most wanted
Number one to be exact
The enemy of the planet
Because it acted like a criminal
When it zapped me
Took all my energy
And
Left me dragging
Throughout the entire day
It devitalized
It enervated
And
Immobilized me
So much so
I could not take one more step
I was ready to
Lay down where I stood
So that I may recoup
Some of the energy
That it stole from me
The amount of heat
The sun is releasing is unbelievable
It felt as if
I was carrying
A lot of dead weight
This burden was so heavy
I would not wish it on anyone
Because
My body never felt this sluggish
Weakened
Defeated
Before this day
This heat index
Consumed me
