I face my enemy.

I encounter my foe once,
then over again.
It exposed the unknown, revealed the hidden.
The foolish thing is, this once use to be my best friend.

Forcing myself,
I gape deep into its eyes.
What I see? It's indescribable.
What I hear? My agonizing, excrutiating cries.

I had trusted it, having high expectations.
I made a mistake.
A mistake of misjudging, listening,
but yet reacting to its truthly covered, well deceived lies.

These thoughts. Their opinions. My judgement.
A world of bewilderment I'm lost in.
Caught up in derangement, along with disorder.
When this will stop, I can't imagine when.

It makes me scream.
It gives me pain, torture, agony, distress.
It changed my life.
Most of all, it changed me.
