A life cycle of doubt

 
 
It methodically creeps  
like a cunning thief
pilfering  
that which is most precious  
and dear  
 
Causing shadows
to quietly darken  
disintegration of faith—
slowly
crumbles away  
anxiety
becomes
the rule
not the exception
 
Internal calls of sanctuary,  
muffle to unheard  
a hard grasp  
vicegrips  
twisting  
streams of confidence
 
Lungs burn  
sparse air  
life, barely trickles  
O' the struggle of breath
within such a stagnant  
vacuum
 
Leaving  
nothing
but  
densely  
corrosive  
silence

 
 
to
perfectly
permeate  
 
 
 
 
the last
vestiges
of
authentic
certitude.

Self doubt can wreak havoc.... if you let it.
