The Lie That Changed My Life: lies can really distort a situation, and left alone a lie can destroy the lives that those involved. Check out this example.

I wrote this short fiction story while I should have been sleeping.

Constant nagging of a voice within, you can do this, just one more. Relentless battle, giving in, takes it slow. The explanations persist. Sleep is a crutch my mind contends, you’ve gone with less so why stop now you’re almost done!

I don’t submit, this time I fight. The shower stings, its icy touch fails to stop the endless torment of my gyratory wit. I need help. I ruminate as I lie in bed eyes open wide. Should I wake her? The notion eases my mind. No this is my fight let her sleep.

My mind persists. Its tainted rhetoric pulls me further down the polluted river of my existence. I’m already up; sleep won’t be here any time soon. I give up. I cease the fight, besides I’m almost done. I sit up knowing that day will bring a dim dreary version of reality.

Alcohol? No it’s been six months. Drugs perhaps? Nope, ten years have passed. What, you ask? It’s these words that plague my mind both night and day. The words I write, no that’s not true. The words I can’t write bring obsession, passion and helpless addiction into my life.
