Leeching

by Skyfire   Nov 4, 2020


what do you call the
'what ifs'
that crawl into
all the spaces
of your cranium
and bore holes
in all the love you
thought you had?
like termites -
they eat you away,
slowly.

    Short and so good. Anxiety and self doubts have ruined so many things we hold close. The title is perfect. I love the way you write in such less sentences. Beautifully sad.
