“I don’t know how much strength I have left
to keep fighting ghosts that never die.”
These poisonous thoughts are my curse. My downfall. My demise. They haunt me. Taunt me. And burn me to bone and ash. What was once a voice, whispering in my ear like a little demon, is now a continuous flow of words. Like a broken record. I can’t drown them out. Every moment of every day, I’m put in my place and I don’t know how much strength I have left to keep fighting ghosts that never die.
