compulsions escalating to obsessions,
as the id, ego and superego battle it out.
tearing one from the other,
where intellect and will become a messy blur.
where one is left behind,
tear stricken and alone.
deceived by worldly schemes,
and promises of perpetual happiness.
*Holy Week. Maundy Thursday. Reflection on Jesus Christ's sacrifice on the cross. Dying for our sins. Our endless sins and ungrateful nature. His mercy abounds forever. Do not be blinded. What choice do we make?
