The End Of Obsession

You’re being strangled by the darkness
Feel its ever tightening grip
You entered this traumatic state
After taking a poisonous sip
Temptation turned into madness
Lust gave way to fear
Peace threatened by violence
Whispered in your ear

Finding comfort in this torture
Is the definition of insane
It’s an illusion to derive pleasure
From being pelted by the rain
The repetition is monotonous
The message is always the same
You can’t reason with your captor
It only adds to your shame

But deep down within you
Is the last wave of resistance
It’s just waiting for your call
Can you overcome this persistence?
Yet you still believe in the lies
That seduce you into submission
And you can’t renegotiate
You already gave your permission

So what is the answer?
How will you be released?
Have you suffered enough punishment
Or will it be increased?
You can extricate the truth
Buried deep within your depression
And what you will uncover
Is the end of your obsession
