The Urges

The urges

They’re back

And they’re out for blood.


Why are they here?

I don’t understand

Why they came back.


I feel them like

A punch to my gut

Quick but it leaves a wound


Its quite baffling

Trying to figure out

Why they’ve returned


I feel sick when

A new wave of urges

Floods over me


I don’t want to

I can’t

Give in to the urges


This can’t be happening

Not again

Things were going great


It has been on my mind

But more as a memory…

That’s what invited them back


I feel the pit too

Just there sucking my

Life and happiness away


Things were so great

Why did they have to return,

Why did I have to invite them back?
