My Own Worst Enemy

September 11, 2012
I am my own worst enemy.

My thoughts they race and

Torment me

With could have beens and what could be

And all that seems to smother me.

I am my own worst enemy.

To myself I will not lie

For my own mistakes and slip ups

I lie awake and cry.

I am my own worst enemy.

I judge myself on most days

This invisible bar I must raise

I'm caught up in a foggy haze

Of sadness, darkness, and more cliches.

I am my own worst enemy.

This, I know is true

For I'm the one who

Ruined us

And now I have lost you.
