Ruled by Anxiety

I can’t get a thought in edgeways
When my head is full of fear,
Anxiety wreaks havoc
And my other thoughts aren’t clear.
The part of me that’s strong and sane
Is sitting in a well,
It tries to shout advice to me
I think, it’s hard to tell
Because it sounds so distant
And its words are all obscured
By the nasty mumbo jumbo
That I’m trying to ignore.
Eventually I break and cave
And anxious thoughts run free.
And when they do,
For a short time
I wish I wasn’t me.

    When I read this, I thought you had written it just for me! I’m going to reblog over on Julia’s place if that’s OK?

    This poem by my very clever dear friend Pooky popped up in my mailbox on the day when the demons were rampant in my head. She expresses exactly how I felt but in such a better way they I could tell you!

  8. I love your poems! I know those racing thoughts – I used to follow them all over the place, now I don’t do that as much. Thank you for being here, Pookie.
