Toxic Inner Dialogue

Personal (Hope)

There are voices in my head,
in the pit of my conscious.

These voices wage war
against my heart,
they poison hope.

They whisper
in the back of mind
saying ugly lies like
“Why would anyone love you?”.

Sometimes I build something up
in my mind so much
that when it finally happens
it's not at all how I imagined.

These worries are misguided;
these fears ill-conceived.

They are not based in the truth
you implanted in my soul
that you always loved me
and I deserve happiness.
