Patterns by Dillon Jensen


or habits

are what caused or causes

these feelings I feel

and these thoughts I think.

They are very real

always present

lingering in the back of my head.

; Waiting for the opportunity

to strike yet again, which anymore is pretty often.

Feedback loops tend to get reinforced

as we are creatures of habit,

creatures of patterns,

regardless of their positive or negative influence.

A feedback loop or cycle

then has its newfound opportunity to strengthen that connection

and one can see how easily they may or may not fall

down the rabbit’s hole.


In my experience, this is how it manifests itself…

A truly vicious

downward cycle

of my own destruction.
