Artificial Intelligence

BIt by bit, atom by atom, I'm being broken down. Double helix separating, tearing me apart. I don't feel human anymore. Half robot half zombie, I stumble on. I reject human contact, their complexities scare and bemuse me. I'm impervious to their emotional states, or so I think. Wires cross, my artificial intelligence short circuits. Numbness giving way to the grasp of pins and needles. Brain and body overloaded, my faulty wiring can't cope with the rush.

With the rush comes the flood. Tears rust away the metal, revealing skin and bone. I'm jolted back to human from just being. My DNA's reprogramming, my sense of self reshaping. Out with the old, in with the new. New mindset, new focus. New journey to conquer with my all seeing eyes. I was built to be robust enough to withstand the bug, hold it at bay. I'm no longer walking willingly into the virus' snare.
