"write from your heart, write from your soul, make the best of your talent and never let go. not for anything"

Something's swelling deep inside me
An essential need and a bit of greed
Softly threatening to take over

An age old war waging on with this battle
A great beast lumbering in releasing a low grumble
I feel it spreading through my being
A raging wildfire within me
It grows, it builds, it swells

From my toes to my nose
it's in every cell
Pulsing through my veins
resting in each organ
It's part of me now there's no escape

Resistance? Useless, best to just give in
As natural as breathing
Or keeping your heart beating

Following me like a dark shadow
Until I give it what it needs
But of course, before I know it
We're right back where we started

There's no winning, no surrenders
It gets what wants, what it needs, whatever
Within me it triumphantly gloats
Forever undefeated forever winning

Peacefully it rests in hiding until the next battle
Those silent hours the best of the day
Soon it's back stronger then before

Bearing down heavily on me as I try to escape its grasp
I do everything in my power
Nothing works
It's a hopeless fight
A bleak outcome to an endless struggle
