Storytime - Soul

Cancer,
HPV,
Heroin,
Herpes,
Crystal Methamphetamine.
This is the damage I have done to myself,
Another disease waiting,
Another drug
Urging me to
Dust them off of
A future shelf.

Many think that I have nothing wrong
With me.
Oh, but I do.
None of you truly know me on here.
So I am going to vent,
The five things I've listed,
There is more to it,
That if I may,
Extent.
Depression,
Somatization Disorder,
Occipital Neuralgia,
Social Anxiety.
Oh and how could I forget!
Anorexia as well.
I am a victim to rape and molestation.
All these things,
Have shaped who I am.
I have been damned,
Slammed with things
That I cannot understand.
Addiction,
Disease,
Affliction,
One ounce of happiness,
Will just be a tease.
Because in the end,
Something will always turn out wrong,
And all these things tell me,
That this Earth
Is where
I do not
Belong.
