Trapped in a repetitive cycle of wants and needs
Slowly unraveling inside of me.
There are many things,
An entrapment of feelings.
Letting go does not seem to be an option.
Therefore, I sit painfully
Letting it all consume me.
All of this negative energy
Swirling around and around
Inside then out.
Self-sabotage I commit without a doubt.
The strength is overwhelming,
Devastatingly daunting.
I feel I can no longer resist,
Resist the temptation, resist the urge.
Self-preservation does not seem to be a concern
My brilliance, my beauty, and heart
Are left behind
In the beginning,
At the start.
What is left is nothing,
An empty vessel that once used to be.
Termination turned to temptation
Lost in illusion,
In disarray.
Scattered thoughts become astray.
Numbness from head to toe.
A blank slate,
A black hole,
Till the next day.
