It's creeping back
This haunting reality
Feelings that are all too familiar

It sleeps beneath my skin
Restless when the mind is such 
Awakening at the slightest blow 
Breaks me from the inside out
Yet, still cozy 
Making it's home 
Deeper within my bones 

Break my ribs and tear it away 
I cannot breathe...
Each time it wakes 
A crippling pain
It cries for attention 

Soothe it to sleep
With more medication 
Even still, I walk on eggshells
In fear of waking the monster within 

There's no room for the both of us
And if it awakens again
I think it might win
