Where do these hostile thoughts come from? Thes painful memories so unresolved? Why do they besiege me? How can I find refuge? My mind is battered by conversations that never end. Run away emotions, assault at will; a plague of doubt. Foreign armies invade my inner life. Bottle wars, self hatred, depression, a legion of lies batter territorial spirits seek to possess all that is precious to me. Past conversations that never ended, with those I love. With those I look too. With those who I failed, and failed me.
