It creeps into my mind,
Quietly, without much ado.
Once inside, it fills up the entire space
And promptly sets up residence.
From them on it consumes me,
Riles me and spurs me on.
It blinds me to logic
And makes me abandon all reason.
In mad fury do I function,
A walking wreck I have become.
When I come across her, it fills me with bitterness,
Causing me to explode.
I spew filth and make her wither
Till she’s too scared to even retort.
It makes me find comfort in her pain.
I go on till I run out of steam
But not before she begins to look at me with disdain.
Deflated and satisfied after getting rid of all my venom,
I return to normalcy.
Then it smirks,
And proceeds to leave me
With a smug smile plastered on its face.
I let one doubt destroy me,
Left without any saving grace.
