you continue to
just lie there
and dream
or something 
losing you
was so easy
when faced
with the truth 
of how
perfect it is
when seeking perfection
I have learned never
to underestimate
my own self destructive
tendency to fail 
at critical times
and I leave work realizing 
I am fighting 
the devil.
