Having Tea with My Demons

The world inside myself
Is less terrifying
Six months since my fall from grace
My identity shattered
I built myself anew
Phoenix from the ashes
I always fear a relapse
Falling into old habits
I try not to forget
The things that brought me here
I spend more time inside my head
Where I live with my demons not
In fear of what they will do
