Unwanted Guest

After completing

two years of therapy

I thought

I would finally be free.

Between the talking

and the self-help books I read,

I could continue my life

without this

unwanted guest in my head.

I searched for answers

on why he came to visit

but none were enough

to make him desist.

He waits until

I think I’m feeling better,

then he returns with

his upsetting chatter.

He offers opinions

I never find helpful,

his ultimate goal

is to make me feel dreadful.

His success rate

is very high

as my therapist knows

when I cover for him with a lie.

Maybe the best solution

is to accept my fate

and try to treat him with

love instead of hate.
