Voices! Tearing, insinuating, agonising, resentful voices!
You try to indulge in something else, in hope of taking them down.
But like sly little creatures, these voices know just when you’ve let your mind at rest for a moment.
And they attack, like a hoard of locusts, infiltrating every sinew in you.
Over time, It’s apparent that the more you push them away, the more that multiply. Like infectious bacteria they dominate and consume your thoughts, your mind, body and maybe eventually, your soul!
I haven’t yet found the cure.
