Relax, it’s just me again
That little voice inside your head
That turns letters into words into sounds
That reads read and read
And differentiates between the two
Without giving you a choice
In the matter
And of course,
You think you can turn me off.
Same old you.
You want to sleep but I
OVER and OVER about what you did wrong
(did you like my emphasis? i know you heard it.)
Oh, and don’t forget,
How I LOATHE every little thing you’ve done.
The times you thought no one was looking,
Or that they couldn’t hear your thoughts.
I did. I can.
You must hate me by now.
In fact, I’m sure you do.
You’ve been taking pills lately.
Little blue ones
That match the blue mood I gave you
Are you afraid of the beauty that is my pain?
I’ve given you words
And all you want to do is make me leave?
It’s okay. I know you by now.
Piece by bitter, broken piece,
You’ll be back.
After all, you’re reading this in my voice,
We’re one in the same.
You can’t fight yourself forever.
It’s a battle but I’m winning
