RELEASE ME

It’s an entity that lives
In the pit of my stomach
Its presence ever felt
To varying degrees of
Lingering heaviness

Its tentacle grasp
Reaches out in darkness
Unsuspecting
It quickly attacks

Wrapping round my heart
Weaving its way through
The halls of my mind
The depths of my soul

Twisting reality
Shattering dreams
Bringing to the forefront
Excruciating pain

Vanquishing all light
Blanketing me in darkness
Shifting perception
Shadowing
Convoluting

Reminding me
Yet again
The control
I thought I had
Simply
Does not
Exist

Not against this
Demon

That forever
Dwells
Within
