you have wreaked absolute havoc in my system
complete chaos of head and heart
conflicted by my instinct to run but drawn to stay
complete madness seems to be overtaking me
i am rational, usually
but my logic and sense are fighting a formidable battle
where some part of me wants them to lose
maybe if i persevere in the chaos through it, it will seem commonplace and soon become
sane and safe.
maybe it won't
but instead will engulf me to the point of abomination
should i be grateful that at least the other side has some sense
and probably has not a sense of what is in me.
maybe it is for the best
because my demons should be mine alone
to win or be defeated by my own mastery over the storm.
