An acrostic poem.

I lost myself again.


Trepedatiously into the void,

Realizing reality is gone.


Can't let myself wander

Too long or I fall apart completely.

Indefinite pauses lead to lapses in judgment.

Obfuscated thoughts, tongue-tied, stuck in the mud -

Never finding a way out until I'm drowning in to-dos.
