    turmoil, deep, weeping, empty
    i am but a shell, stumbling, sinking, falling
    the mind a carousel on full speed
    the whir of static muffeling outside sound
    shaking from head to toe
    anxious, cold, numb
    thoughts racing like the grand prix
    irrational? they must be against me too
    temple throbbing, cant think clearly
    hearts drumming leaving an ache in my chest
    each drum weakening my control
    all eyes on me, everythings spinning
    theyre all planning something

    got to fight it, cant let her win!
    dont feed her because i cant control her
    listen to me, please help

    and im gone

    fire burning from deep within
    scalding me, rotting me, my heart a scab
    my soul vanished, shes won
    im losing me, everyones losing me
    i dont want to be, not if i keep being her

    i dont want to be her victim
    i dont want anyone to be her victim
    but her poison runs through my veins
    her vile rolls off MY tongue like calculated evil
    my private thoughts and most sensitive information her weapon of choice
    drowning, lungs filling, unable to gasp for air

    and im gone

    the aftermath a lonely sentance on death row
    what had i done?
    my day a blur of white noise and guilt
    grieving daily for friendships lost
    a life in disrepair

    a life? what life?

    and it's gone
