You're infecting me

You're affecting me as if you were a plague

Churning my stomach

Heating my face

Making my chest ache

And my limbs turn to butter

I can see ridges on what seemed to be

Vertical lines

Tangling them, as

Cross each other

Forming incomprehensible patterns

Until there is no way through

And I was bad at navigation in the first place

You're surrounding me

You show up where ever I look

Even when I close my eyes

And yet somehow you bring light

And confuse me even further

I want to leave you behind but

I just can't

You mean too much

And I'm stuck on your twisted route

Still with no clue

Where it ends
