The words are forced,
I rape my mind
searching
pulling, prodding and
yanking them out.

A hack,
meaningless, thoughtless,
Hack.
Yet.

Don’t stop.
I-will-not-stop.
my judgement,
I am familiar with the blade.

Shredding
devouring
my flesh,
with my words,
thoughts.

I am the demon
within.

I see you demon
Doubt.
extinguisher of life,
hope, peace, joy
pain, suffering,
me.

If-
I allow it.
I do not.
I defy you.
Challenging you,
down goes the gauntlet.

Do your worst.
