it has left.
I have banished it from every corner of my mind
Yet I feel it creeping back,
Sneaking its way in like an unwanted visitor.
"Go away !" I yell,
And even louder I yell again:
"Go away . Leave me alone, let me rest."
It doesn’t hear me,
Nor would it care to listen if it could.
At times it has ultimate control;
I am powerless against such a savage beast .
I cry out ,
But no one hears .
The sound of desolation echoes through the walls.
Still , no one hears.
I am within it now;
it contains me.
It’s voracious appetite for more has a self-consuming passion .
It is unceasing,
Yet, it can be broken
For I have broken it before,
It is indestructible,
Yet, I have destroyed it .
