There’s a bitch …

Inside my head

And she never goes away

She’s always twining on

And I fear she’s here to stay

So I asked her quite directly

“Just what is your bloody beef?”

She paused ….

Before it all poured out

A ton of stuff

That “socked me one”

Stuff that I’d forgotten

And stuff I’d tried to bury

Stuff that I’d glossed over

Though it had hurt me at the time

Yes …

 It ALL flippin’ hurt

And held me back

And pulled me down

Despite me trying

To smother them

These painful thoughts

Will never die

So they must be freed

Allowed to fly

Which leaves me asking

One more time …

Damn bitch


Just PLEASE “get gone”?

Give me some space

Let me move on.
