A manifestation of selfishness and ugliness
Worms its way deep into my bones
It settles over my heart
Dissolves it like acid
There is nothing left but a charred hole
Everything is redirected to the brain
Of reasoning and logic
Emotions are shoved away for another time that never comes
And days continue one at a time
