Hi there, I'm afraid I've not been in a 'chummy' mood for some time. [ Issues too close to home, you see. ] I've not wished to be cryptic. At the same time, talking at length makes me feel as if I'm simply complaining. But never mind. Another 5-7-5 extended haiku... 'DARKEST HOUR BEFORE' It's 'coming out' time: I'm the sad long-time victim Of a Narcissist. Trapped for many years In an invisible box; I'm tired; I'm ashamed. In other bad news: OCD has played its part In keeping me weak. An inmate for life? Is this the final chapter? Or maybe there's more? I am no hero; Greatness is not my buddy; But could we still meet? Never rate too low Intestinal fortitude: The Power of Grit. With sheer force of will Perhaps I can still achieve The impossible?
