December In Review

December came and went in a blur of emotions, empty gift bags, and the uncontrollable feeling that I am slowing moving towards the abyss of thinking- vast and unknown. Looking back at it all, I find myself happy that it’s over. I did not decorate for Christmas this year; no one got presents, I got…

Merry Christmas!

I wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I’ll be taking a week off to plan and wrap up the year with a few posts starting next week. I am so grateful that you have gifted me your time and critic on my blog for the last year. Remember to…

Rain

Rain trickles down my soul  Into my bones And corrupts me once more It should have washed me away  Melted a wicked heart like mine Fuel with regret It rains once more I take it in All the weariness  All my sin It is mine  As I claim it to be Let me wither down…

I wish to break  To crack the foundation upon which we stand  Fall Crumble  Wither away  I will to cease  This beating heart of mine  Like the quiet after the storm  And when the pieces tremble  Drifting as they may  Scattering in the wind  Then I hope you will stay  In this place Shaken by…

Anxiety Does Not Have To Win

It’s beginning to sound like one of those catchy titles to your latest mental health blog. You are welcome. I try to be a bit innovative now and then. For the past two Fridays, I have talked about dealing with anxiety. If you read the poem earlier today, you can see my current state of…

Anxious Thoughts

This is my anxiety speaking  I hope I am not too loud The fear of outside haunts me Locked doors, closed windows Don’t let the sound in  Let me be safe in these four walls All around me suffocating my sanity  My head hurts from thinking so much  I must be dying And in my…
