Mucus Drains

Mucus drains
From numbed mind
Fogged over
With illness
No room to be productive
No room to create
Body refuses
To do much more
Than sit
Stare off into space
Cough
Sleep
If even that much
Sleep is hard
When mouth breathing
Waking after midnight
To cough
Talon scratched throat
Screams
With each labored breath
From the plague demon
Attempting to escape
Clawing
Setting mucus trails
Along mouth
Nose
Throat
Wreaking havoc
Amongst innards
