A Parasite for Souls

It’s attached
You don’t know that it has you
Until it is buried deep down,
Until you’ve fallen too far.
With arms, outstretched,
You reach-
With a voice, empowered,
You scream,
But no amount of power
Can remove this parasite.
No amount of vaccines
Can wear it down.
The symptoms may not always be present,
But you are always suffering,
Waiting, wondering,
When it will all go dark again,
When you fall deep down again;
This parasite only preys on the strong,
But no amount of strength is enough
To suit a cure.
