The Host

Lurking in the back of my mind
Consuming all my thoughts
Setting up a place to live within
For I have become its host

Questioning my conscience
And always making me doubt
It feeds on my insecurities
It feeds on my inner thoughts

I take one move
And suddenly I am scared to take the next
Cowering in a corner
And wondering what to expect

For I have become its host
And it is not a delight
For fear has taken over
And fear might ruin my life
