    there's a little devil inside all of us

    beneath their manufactured perception
    their artificial reality
    is a writhing, twisted mess of dread
    loathing. judgment. elitism. self-doubt
    all thrashing to escape
    the feeble hold of their host
    seeping through every little crevice they can't find
    into their willpower
    starving them of all motivation and desire
    into their stomach
    forcing them to drown their guilt in comfort food
    or into a newly-opened gash in their skin
    hidden only by the sleeves of a cute new shirt
    such a deplorable, tangled mess
    is already present in every single one of us.
