Paroxysm: a sudden attack, convulsion, or seizure, usually of an emotional or medical nature

Call an ambulance,
Call a doctor,
Call someone who can make me better.

"Push fifty epi,
On my word,
With a little luck we might save this girl."

You said "Its over,"
You broke my heart,
People seem to have this down to a bloody fine art.

"Whatever caused this severe convulsion,
The seizure's effect has been devastating,
I think we may have got her here just in time."

I see my nurses and doctors attending,
The seizing and heart attack, I'm on 24 hour watch,
Just in cast the pain comes back.

"Tell us, young one,
What caused this pain,
Is it something in your brain?"

It was the girl who broke my heart,
Took aim and shot it with a dart,
That caused the mass effect to follow.

"Paroxysms are a dreadful mess,
Especially in this very case,
Emotion caused an internal chain reaction."

The doctors signed my release today,
Told me I should stay away,
Mend my heart and fix the rest,
I realise that's for the best,
Stay away from my emotions,
Not start any new devotions,
Keep myself to myself,
After all its for my health.
