The Fight

I can taste the missary and pain.
 
A bitter-sweet concoction
 
Of the utterly insane.
 
 
 
A recipe I know all too well.
 
Like a serpent, it slithers
 
Around my brain to dwell,
 
 
 
In memories better left lost.
 
To corrupt my soul once more
 
And defeat me at all cost.

    The war of self is always the roughest. You laid these lines out with such an eloquent pain.

    Thank you. Most who read this poem seem not to understand it. I believe that there is no greater war than that in which we rage within ourselves.
