Gnawing, howling …

The worm of despair

Gnawing, howling …

It tore a hole in the middle of my chest

Gnawing, howling …

After devouring my left ventricle

Gnawing, howling …

It gains its strength from words


“You’ll never be good enough!”


“You think so highly of yourself, don’t you?”


“Don’t you ever THINK – at all?!!”

or even

“You simply don’t CARE!!!”


stop it, worm

    1. That’s true – and thank you for the comment. It puts everything in the right perspective. 🙂
