Anxiety 04:19
hidden deep in the corners of my mind are these monsters that whisper in my ear to follow them down into madness and panic and they tell me I’m dying and my body responds with the sweat that pours directly from my brain, as my heart goes into flutters and the sensations swoosh through me like waves I grab onto anything that seems concrete, while my reality slips away, don’t hear it coming from beneath, its telling me to run, you say everything is fine, but my chest is caving ins this hand railing is the only thing that i have left before darkness, while my arms feel weightless and i scream and i breath at a million miles per hour and when I come back inside, and storm clouds clear, i feel mostly fine, as if Ive woken from a night mare, that wasn’t real, but is this lurking, in the background to strike again and I’m down, please help me
Depression 05:33
its monday again grey and cold outside i lay in this bed too painful to sleep in or get up I am worn out to dry shrivel and die never to be seen again bleeding from the mind just all pale grey a space in my chest is enormous the truth can ware you down the hole begins to span and the emptiness rushes in this too will pass
Awakening 06:19
isn’t it funny how the mind will choose to see with a grip of unmoving certainty shades of charcoal staining open doors past and future remaining open soars and then a change in the angle of your look altering sentences in the pages of your book halting thoughts that made you see in one way ignoring plots that many times led you astray awaken inside of me, strip away all that is not real
