I Cannot Resist
Why should life be complicated, anyway?
They told me...
I think I'm in Love
Make me Free Again

soul mates

There are many things that
irritate me.
There so many little things that
drive me insane.
Too many people get at me
and wind me up.
I have a lot of patience
but not even that is enough to
stop me from feeling indignant.
There are so many more important problems
that I should be worried about.
But no.
I am surrounded with idiocy.
I cannot get away from these little things.
I would happily run away from it all.
I really would.
But I can't because I have people who
need to reject my help
or take my reserved space
or keep poking me when I'm working
or make me go through madness before telling me
that I shouldn't have bothered coming.
I am so close to burning myself to ash.
I am so close to breaking out.
I am so very close to annihilation.
They should all be very afraid.
They do not know the demon that slumbers within me.
Yes, I am usually a happy person
but even the most tolerant person has a breaking point.
This is my breaking point.
And I am an inch away from
Unleashing Hell
