IT Once Was  Mine

Bury me  
or this ego of mine  
apart, from who I am  
This unconscious self  
that exercises free will  
separate from my own.
Demons move about  
a relative alive within me  
caters to this fully centered  
Bury me  
or this ego that reigns  
over my wake, and sleep  
This driven force, from somewhere inside  
attempting to please Itself
as if, I don't mind  
I have no say, over  
this, that calls me its own
Bury me  
or this ego that angers  
me, fulfilling my needs  
Infuriating my bones  
to be like IT  
Motivation beyond anything  
seemingly real  
This god awful imprint that  
leaves me dry.  
Sprinkled with bits the likeness  
of me like colored sugar  
over my personality
Bury me  
and this ego of mine  
sin so sweet it rots me  
inside out.  
A gladiator chest escorts  
me wherever I go  
These eyes see only days  
of darkness surrounding  
my every intent  
Bury me    
or this ego of mine    
before more of me falls    
off into this precipice    
of forlorn existence    
Bury this ego    
of mine    
this ego once mine
