We are our own jinx

When we go after what we cannot have
When we insist on what is not ours
When we deliberately put ourselves in harms way
When we lay our bed with roses
When we keep returning to what is dead and buried
When we never forget what is done is done
When we give second chances to one-offs
When we try to mend broken mirrors
When we take a back seat
When we go back on our word
When we break a confidence
When we poison our own minds
When we go chasing shadows
When we pawn ourselves between the devil and the deep blue sea
When we break our own rules
When we make promises we can’t keep
When we think we can cheat ourselves out of our responsibilities
When we think we can cheat nature and get away with it
When we become our own god
