the first time i saw you, i wasn't scared.
you only looked like a shadow.
i didn't know you could consume me
or that you decided to host a permanent reunion of your family
in my house,
even though you were everywhere,
i still wasn't scared.
we would hold conversations, but they got worse.
you told me the things i knew were true,
but i didn't want to hear.
you and your family were taking over and i was drowning.
you're hungry, aren't you?
your games in the night aren't enough anymore, are they?
you're getting dangerous.
nothing i'm doing is working.
why are you still here?
i've already given you everything you want!
i've submitted to your evil and your power,
so what more do you want?
who are you?
are you me? am i you?
is that why you follow my every waking movement?
is that how you know everything about my problems?
is that why i can't defeat you?
i'm getting weaker.
you're getting stronger.
you're getting greedier.
i can't do anything except watch you tear me apart and take everything away from me.
why am i so pathetic?
i'm begging you to help me.
i'm asking for a sliver of your attention.
all i need is a hug, ok?
and then i'll make it out of this.
