Release Me

As I sit here lost in the confines of my own head, I feel it building
What is it? I don’t know but I don’t like it.
I curl up tight to protect myself from the onslaught but its no good
The onslaught is from within. I’m being betrayed by my own mind
Why are you doing this to me? Haven’t you given me enough grief already?
Why are you betraying me like this?
Its rising, I’m being suffocated, so uncomfortable, I need to let it out
Its eating me from the inside, burning away like acid on a piece of metal
I don’t want to feel like this anymore. I have to do something, anything to get a release.
I ping an elastic band on my wrist to try and feel the distraction of pain.
Pain is good it works….usually
More burning, eating, nawing, my very soul is being consumed by this unknown monster attacking me from within.
I cant make it go away. Its going to eat me alive if I don’t do something soon.
I cant stand it anymore. Its time for drastic measures. A tried and true remedy
I walk to the bathroom and run a hot bath. I know the hot water will counteract and nullify the burning of my soul.
My soul is sacred. Burn my skin. It will grow back. Leave my soul alone
You made me this way. You caused this evil. Now you suffer the consequences

I slip my legs into the sweet heat of the water and feel the intense burn transfer from within to the nerve endings of my skin.
Be vanquished from my head. Go and terrorise some other victim. I did not ask for this. What did I do that was so wrong?
This is all I know to make you go away.
