Scrunched so tight,

And wound with unseen might,

Like a rusted cog,

It all runs so deep,

They say mind over matter,

And though its power is so great,

Escape is a climb,

To overcome its wills,

To fight the demons that lurk next to every good intention,

And to make it stop,

Not in permanence,

But in short,

To let me breathe.
