Thoughts Unedited...

A Glimpse of My Chaotic Brain

i find myself pacing the house, almost like a cat sniffing a mouse...

no actual goal in mind, just searching for peace to ease my never-ending mind...

jumbled thoughts fill my brain, like 10,000 pieces of a puzzle, someone poured down a drain...

normally for me, staring at these four walls, can calm the beast...

yet, as of right now, anguish is more of how i feel, to say the least...

it seems to me, when i give effort to life, life comes back and fills me with strife...

an end is near, i do fear...

the bottom of the bottle once again, has become my best friend...

depression is now my shadow...

wherever i go, she always follows...

on my right sleeve is my music, my relief...

without it, i would be filled with grief...

i can honestly admit at last, that in a short time, all of these feelings will pass...

teaching myself to move on, push forward, and to enjoy everyday's new dawn.

love to think and pour my thoughts onto paper... i enjoy writing mostly poetry, but also enjoy to envelop myself in deep thoughts of humanity and life ...
