Who Are You!

Art by Ditte Løfgren (part of larger painting)

Your thoughts cutting,
slowly mutilating your mind;
distorting your world,
hurting you,
blinding you.
Tormented thoughts
eating through your heart;
destroys everything
you ever held dear.
Pitiful and feeble,
sanity has left your body.
A tortured shadow
that thirsts and craves
and burns along the way.
Who are you
from whom light refrains
and fire pales away in distress.
Who are you?
A vague reflection,
a distortion
of one I used to know.
