Enemy

I am my own enemy/
In a constant state of boxing my own shadow/
Dismantling the instruments of my inner symphony –/
Deafening myself from my own echo/

I am my own beast/
Raging on an inner war that never ends/
Ending sentences that I never spoke as if my thoughts have ceased/
Tying up my hands so they cannot extend/

I am my own saboteur/
Cutting roots to never grow/
Feeling as if there’s something more/
Something pent up long ago/

I am my own drought/
Slowly killing what time has built/
Destroying any hopeful flowers that threaten to sprout/
Condemning all beauty to die and wilt
