the shadows we own

i tried defeating myself. i read your words until they hurt. but that did nothing. i guess these shadows were darker than i had hoped.

how do you rid yourself of that which dwells inside of you? is it possible? or are we destined to fight the shadows we own? i’m told i have weapons. but do i have the right to bear them? i want to abandon me. i need to abandon me. do you want to abandon me? please, say you don’t.

we are all caged. we can only taste freedom when we surrender to a king. and that is freedom, right?

there are certain things we will never escape.

ourselves.

because i can defeat my thoughts, but i cannot defeat my own heart.
