The Demon of My MindBy Grace
You manipulate me,
feeding me thoughts no one should think.
I stop for a moment and blink.
about these thoughts you feed me,
the things you tell me,
the lies you give me.
I think about the times I forgot to lock,
to check to clock,
3 times to knock.
When will this stop?
I need to lock,
and check the clock,
not forgetting three times to knock,
when will this stop?
Must wash once more,
complete this chore,
done once now four,
this feels like war.
Did I check the door?
The things I do,
to rid of you,
you stick like glue,
lurking in the depths of my mind.
Yet I must stop for a moment and blink,
to remember my strengths and think.
I am stronger than you.
And I always will be.
