Stranglehold

Where do these thoughts

originate from?

the very ones I lie awake

waiting to come.

Where do they hide

when I’m feeling well?

is there a secret room

in my inner hell.

Where can I go to get rid

of them from my head?

or do I have to wait

until I am laid out dead.

These thoughts that have

grown stronger over the years,

have now won out

and left me in tears.

Was I born with them or

did they find me on their own,

did they emerge from the

shadows when I was alone.

Why can I not resist

their hurtful intentions?

is there no cure or any chance

of an intervention

to release me from

their stranglehold,

or must I continue to

listen and do what I am told.
