light in hopeless spiral

as i lay
in fever soaked
nightmare
her smile calls forth
through the night
the sickness claws
upon my chest
wheezing
wet coughs
fill the dark room
around me
she casts down
her halo of light
to offer relief
in the sullen
suffering
no matter how bad
it may be
she is the hope
in the midst
of dire illness
