Depression & Mental Health

Mental Masochism

It was meant to be my penance

Self-imposed punishment

But in time I grew to love the pain

I inflicted on myself

I became addicted

To the torment inside

Eating me alive

I gave in

To masochistic tendencies

Allowing the disease

To take over

And infect my mind

I gave it control

Over my entire being

Until

I finally saw

The self-destructive nature

Taking over me

And I realised

It was time for me to fight

And regain control
