Recovery Rollercoaster

When I was
growing up I
regretted each and 
every mistake. 

I was eaten up
by guilt;
it was all consuming
like a sky going from
blue to black
before a big storm.

Anytime someone
was upset or 
something went
wrong I 
searched for any
possible reason to 
make it my fault.

Like an Easter egg hunt,
I analyzed situations
hungry for a way to
fault myself. 

I am not a 
little girl anymore, 
but I am still
consumed by guilt 
that I was starving 
to find.
