scourges

pleading—
i can’t retreat
aching details
of past and present
flogging my mind
with intense censures
breaking my skeletons
ripping my veins
i can’t die
in this anguish

    Yeah, those niggling thoughts of what I could have done, should have done, should not have done, could have done better… glad I’m mostly free of those negative cycles of doubt and deep regret :D
