Never just a cold

Sometimes it's just a sniffle
Still feels so awful.
Makes me want to waffle.

Sometimes, it's the sneezing.
So constant it's not pleasing.
Incessant, very unpleasant.

Sometimes, it's a whooshing in my ears.
Head feels cloudy and unclear.
And that I can't really bear.

Sometimes, I just can't breathe
It even makes me wheeze.
Causes me so much grief.

Sometimes, it's that streaming nose
Terrible to lie comatose,
Feebly trying to stem the flow.

Because a cold is never, ever just that.
Leaves me like a wet rat
And knocks me out flat.
