My Depression

I am lost within myself I feel I can't break free My thoughts and emotions are torturing me I wishni could identify what "IT" is that is consuming me All I know, is IT is my enemy For years now, this enemy has kept me in his eye sight I've known him, even considered him a friend Although I hated him My addiction kept him at a distance Men, sex, drugs, alcohol and self mutilation Even from afar, even when I thought he was gone He would creep up and laybright beside me At times I would even welcome him Now I'm left alone to face him Just me I wanted desperately to fight him on my own Although I knew IT was going to be hard Cause I could feel his fingers on me NOW? Now Intel I'm losing the battle Cause I feel him completely wrapped around me Mind, body, and soul Even my heart He no longer just lays beside me At night He has devoured me Consumed me I am he.. he is I I no longer have anyone to catch my tears They are wasted and useless I fight him all day I'm screaming for comfort Sally Harris Written: February 11, 2012 My old handle name...... stillborn 74

So well expressed ~ fear neither fought nor repressed ~ we may choose release ~ with nonchalant ease ~ in stillness, our awareness ~ a staid witness ~ looks on in curiosity ~ choosing not connectivity ~ no arrow can spear ~ if we are not here
