  • stress and soreness

    I'll get to the point yea, right away

    I'm having trouble handling my life today

    I've been ridiculed, mocked, and I've been clocked

    And I have no defense, my senses locked

    I've been disrespected, my pride is all infected

    The world in online life reflected

  • unravel me

    unravel me without delay

    with batting thread and macrame

    my mental health's unmade today

    and rapidly I start to fray

    .

    the stomach acids eat at me

    my eyes lose focus and can’t see

    my skin is sloughing off so free

    cascades of wellness one two three

  • Mind Purge 3

    But I've no strength, no courage! If I must

    Continue living, tread the steeper way,

    Climb crises--impulse might o'erride dread; just

    An instant could decide things either way.

  • A Friend Date

    I'm going to meet my friend tonight

    When we hold hands, my heart's so light

    I'll kiss his face and hug him tight--

    My pulses race just thinking of our date.

    For months uncounted, it has been

    My dearest wish, though still unseen,

    To bravely ask, with…

  • Friendship Anxiety

    I hope that I can find a proper manner

    To make new friends and treat them as they’d choose,

    So they feel safe and cheerful ‘neath my banner

    And not be overwhelmed, creeped out, bemused.

    I know there’s something wrong, but no one tells

    Just where I erred…

  • Beat a Retreat

    You know that words can hurt

    Even more than a stick or a stone.

    A pen destroys more than a sword

    A doctor’s care I can’t afford

    But there’s safety in staying alert;

    Still more, in life alone.

    I see where I went wrong;

    I’m uncertain what I should have don…

  • Fight to the Finish

    My life is an arena where a struggle for control

    Is always raging, night and day. O, who shall win my soul?

    At times, my heart will seize the helm, and love with all its might

    But then my mind will land a punch and try to do what’s right.

    And alternatin…

  • Emotions and Anaesthetics

    Emotions rage & flare inside my mind

    
I panic, scream, & quiver oftentimes,


    But these explosive feelings feel confined

    
Behind a barricade that muffles, mutes, & binds.

    I know I'm having feelings, but their sound

    
Is stifled, distant; my heart seems quit…

  • Too anxious to fix it

    I'm lonely, I'm lonely

    I'm drifting away

    If only, if only

    Friends weren't far away.

    I've wandered much longer

    Than I thought I would

    Forever I ponder

    If my choice was good

    I want so to reach out

    And touch someone's hand

    Before thoughts can leach out
