My soul is under a silent siege that only my brain can hear. An endless barrage of negative thoughts ranging from, ‘you’re fat’ to ‘you’re stupid’ all in a matter of nanoseconds… maybe even at the same time.

Silence, you fool.

I scream, “Liar! Liar! Pants on fire!” but, it doesn’t hush the beast inside my head. Its lived here for so long that eminent domain (of my thoughts) are now in effect.

“Go ahead, write another line of code, dummy. It won’t work. Why not have a cookie while you do it, fat ass.”

Myself is a liar. Whose pants are on fire. Sadly, not even an ocean full of water can stop the flame.
