Tinnitus* is here since the first time,
The first time you had ditched me...
Oh yeah it had gotten okay temporarily,
Because you patched up momentarily.
Now I have an even stronger Vertigo,
Ever after I am of some knowledge..
How did you put up such a good act,
Why did you double cross me?
He confirmed what your mom told me,
That he had come down to your town..
Before I did, much before you knew me,
Even earlier than you stepped in my life...
I don't want to know who you cheated,
He might as well feel double-crossed.
You're right, that's your personal issue,
I am nobody to make comments on it.
Now I suspect that I have a Neuroma,
They dub it as Acoustic Neuroma.
You may ask me simply,
"What sense is that self-diagnosis?"
Well I just observed the symptoms,
A persistent headache,
The confirmatory test will be held soon,
It is not often always a malignancy,
And I will just hope for the best.
I really hope that it is not cancerous,
For that would bankrupt the family,
Cancer - that too a brain tumour...
As if I had gulped down barrels of wine,
Vertigo is as though I'm inebriated,
It is seriously very irritating.
Irritating me for long is this tinnitus,
Now vertigo has just added to them,
My miserable mysterious miseries.
But don't you worry and keep playing,
You're an excellent playgirl,
There're so many boys as toys for you.
I have shown symptoms of auditory neuroma and I will be going for a costly diagnostic test.
You need not worry about that at all,
Because this suspected auditory neuroma,
Will probably not be cancerous.
So the bad news is that I will probably survive once again.
