Little Voice

little voice,
you are not welcome
back in my head.

don’t talk to me
while i’m in the mirror.
don’t remind me
of that stupid, empty high.

you are the last thing i need.

i deserve to fill myself
with reason, pride, and love.
i deserve to see myself
with truth and no distortion.
i deserve—
to live.
