    Technically this is about one demon in my life, but it can fit two... my ex and the urges to SI...

    Your sweet words weaved the snare,
    That you trapped me with.
    You stole away what was me,
    Bite by bite you ate my soul.
    You knew I'd try to fill the emptiness,
    With the very thing that left the hole,
    And with a thumb on my lips,
    You made me forget...
    The more reasons you gave me,
    To fight you, The weaker I became.
    I closed my eyes,
    I gave myself up...
    You won over me,
    And now you're haunting my dreams,
    Creeping through my doors,
    Whispering to me at night,
    Dismantling my progress every time,
    You come knocking,
    Thumb on my lip,
    Telling me I am feeding your addiction,
    As you give me what you want me to need.

    I see how this applies to both triggers, I don't really understand the first struggle, but I have struggled with SI and understand to a degree. You did a great job putting that feeling into words.
