Random Poem:


I exist to forget…
I stare into my eyes in the mirror
And know
My desperation
Runs deeper than I can see
Every thought I have
Is then followed
You permeate my being
So much so
That I’m aftraid
That I am no longer just mine
There is a part of you
Intertwined with me
Unsure of how to continue
I am weak and powerless to stop it
Everything I am
You are there
Everything I do
You are there
Every, thought, action, and breath
….You.  Are.  Constant.
