Fighting with Myself

Backed into a corner–
The walls are closing in.
The voices in my head
Begin to scream again.
Shouting, pulsing, anger–
Internal angst and pain.
Exploding from within
Emotions pull and strain.
Manifesting physically,
Marks of pain on skin;
Grief, guilt, and shame–
The cycle starts again.
Huddled in the corner,
Hoping for a peaceful end.
‘Darkness is my closest friend’
