The Invisible Battle

Eschewing the threat
of forlorn solitude,
I succumbed 
to the proposal
of sly temptation.
Paying no heed
to the apprehensions 
of my soul,
I submitted myself
to the lure of deceits.

Hence the beginning
of my distressing plight:
alas, I'm now trapped
in forged chimera.
Like an undead pirate
ravenous for affection,
my sanity's consumed
by my thirst for acceptance.

Yet blinded by delusions
I still chose to remain
in this pretentious warp
of terrestial hell.
Ignoring the clamor
of my heart and psyche,
I'm now whole, yet divided
between myself and I.
