Doubt Is The Seed That Kills You

It eats into you like a virus growing
from the inside out. It starts from a seed
of bitterness and resentment,
and attaches itself like a creeper
desperate for the sun.
Until one day you realise it has devoured you
and you no longer see the light,
and you are accustomed to the dark.
This is how you stop caring.
This is how you stop trying.
This is how you die
even before the air leaves your lungs.
