Poem: Haunted House

“Regret always follows

Making you feel hollow

You promise it is the last

Even if you know it is a lie


Seeking pain, not fullness

Using life, not deathly blades

With no scars for suspicion

Still falling into self-destruction


The mirror became an enemy

Forever ashamed of failing

Gave up on winning

Yet, the guilt is infinitive


Skipping like a cheater

You are just a quitter

A confusing paradox

Hidden in Pandora’s box


Can’t control the impulse

Became as normal as your pulse

Trying to battle the obsession

Till resistance reaches its threshold”
