A War Within

It quietly breaks down the walls

Slowly engulfing, slowly constricting

Revealing all the flaws 

With pain so inflicting


It creeps in through the darkest place 

Waiting to seize control 

Greeting with a warm embrace

Breaking down the soul


It brings only death

In its wake of destruction

Taking away your breath 

With pure seduction
