Long Distance Metastasis 

Remember the first time we Met?

It was a splendid malignant day

You weren’t looking for anything serious

Had a no strings attached benign way

Working your tumor next door charm

Effortlessly made apoptosis to disarm

That was the day I knew you’ll be my girl

Shining amidst the neoplastic whirl

And so our passion grew

Lustful proliferation ensued

VEGF partied in our honor

TGF-beta crippled in a corner

All I am today I owe it to you

Memories keep me from feeling blue

In a lifetime full of radio-chemo betrayal

You’ll always be my one true primary

I write to you from a foreign endothelial

Though you don’t reply to your secondary

The reply-

You accuse me of letting us grow apart 

But it was Distance who played its hand

Fate brought in a hematogenous spread

Lured & seduced with a lymphatic expand

A breach in tight junction, you just fled

Insecure of your paraneoplastic new career 

Came true my deepest fear

We’ve metastasized, now I knew

But this primary hasn’t forgotten you
