Prolonged Exposure

I just want to let go.
I want to let go so badly.
My hands are blistered and bloody –
Holding on to a dream of a possible future.

My ego wants full control.
It wants me to let go of inner silence, now.
Mediation and positive thoughts are exhausting
When my brain is chemically imbalanced.

Corrupted insides
Finding its way out
Through frustration and tears;
Blemishes cover a once flawless façade.

Should I let my ego win?
Give up completely and finally rest?
I just want to let it all go,
Stop trying to mend old wounds.

Please let me go.
