Soul to Ego

You speak loudly in my mind
As if you are who I am
With authority and ownership
That sometimes I forget
And you become me
I exhale a sleeping breath
Automatic rising and falling
Unaware of my power
That I breathe you
You scurry fearfully
At this revelation
I breathe you
I breathe you
In this moment of awareness
You cease to exist
I am not your battery
To think in circles
And behave like death
I am life
Fuel for the living
And a dream for the dead
