there's a war inside me

raging and tearing

ripping and diseasing

every happy feeling i have.

there's a war inside me that,

even when i am asleep

continues to creep and crawl

into the corners of my memories.

and just when i feel

that the fires have burned down

and i can breathe again,

someone lights a match

and the war begins once more.
