A Poem by Rollins

April 2010

I was diagnosed in August 2008. I attend a group for HIV-positive individuals. It helps me cope. I am med free and try to take care of myself by exercising and taking vitamins. I will be starting a clinical research study for HIV meds. I guess it's my way of helping to find a cure. I am Latino, Gay. My partner is negative.

Thief of Souls

Thief of souls, can you feel me?
Does it taste like gold?
Run through my dreams and reach for my heart,
Take your grip and rip me apart.
I'm turning around, who's following who?
I'll take a chance, a chance on you.
That spot on your shelf, does it hold my name?
Adrenaline's flowing, let's end this game!
