The Poisoned mind starts to infect the body and soul

Distorting truth from fiction

Alone the sickness sets in

Digging its trenches deep

The solitude making the voices louder and louder

Belittling, Criticizing, badgering, Judging, Self Doubt,

Comparing, Jealousy and Envy

Worms eating away at the heart and soul

The toxic venom saturating

Like an imploding star

Becoming less and less recognizable

Gazing at the mirror only to see

a hideous creature starring back

All resemblance of what was

Lost in the mirror

Seeing only what the voices tell me

Accepting the grotesque picture being painted

Ashamed at what I have become

Shunned into darkness……
