Gradually

Slowly creeping into my sleep

Insidious thoughts warp my mind

Mostly focused on myself

I feel like a failure again

The demons whisper to me

In a sinister voice

Telling me lies that hurt

Intended to divide my mind

Subtlety they plant ideas

That place the doubt around

And I am left by morning

Feeling treacherous and blind
