Latched on me
A seed of my brokenness
Draining the substance of my soul
Once created by myself or by others
Every ounce of my sadness.. my fears..
Controlled by the toxins you spread
Leaving holes/gaps within me
The painful masterpiece of melancholy
Inadvertently, I let you be
Ran the course through life with passivity
I let the sun rise and fall
Occupying myself with things
Tell me, is there any form of sanctuary if I keep you?
Why haven’t I dealt with you?
Open my Pandora’s box
Drain the negativity that seeps within
