A breakup feels like a tragedy.

Your well-functioning body


Goes downhill.

Headaches and chills

So much discomfort within.

Your head feels heavy

Your outlook, grim.

You want to sleep


Discomfort wins.

Cold and heat

Sock-covered feet.

Sweat drips from

Your face

You alternate



And lucidity.
