It Frightens Me

by Laura Bruns 4 years ago in sad poetry
Report Story

In the Mind of Someone Mentally Ill

I can see my breath

And for some reason

That frightens me

For some reason

I'm very frightened

By everything today

I'm frightened

By my own thoughts

By my own existence

Just by being alone

And I don't know

If that's normal

I don't know

If people understand

What it's like

To be afraid

Of the mind

You live in

To be afraid

Of the life

You were born in

But it's scary

And I don't like it

I don't like

Seeing my breath

I don't like

Seeing my veins

I don't like

Feeling my pulse

As I live my scared life

Because I'm truly frightened

By everything in my mind

And I don't know how to stop it

I don't know how to change it

I don't know what to do

And that scares me
