Poem: I can feel it creeping up again
Sucking the life out of me
Like an ivy infestation
Strangling a tree
Nothing can stop it
Too late, itís already here
My enemy, my nemesis, my living fear
Life is miserable
The sky is grey
All you want is the feeling to go away
Is this living?
What is life for?
My body is primal and so very raw
My mind is screaming
I canít take it no more
