Volatile

Wrapping my arms around myselfTrying to keep all the pieces together.The pressureThe only thing keeping me whole.Teeth clenched and lip closed.Worried I’ll open my mouth and it will all spill out.

Negative Headspace

Lying on my bed. Listening to the heavy raindrops hitting against the window. A usual calming sound brings anxiety. Relaxation brings only restlessness. Energy only leads to exhaustion. Too many thoughts plague my mind. Lonely thoughts keep me from reaching out. I'm fine I repeat to myself, unconvincingly. I'm fine just living in this negative... Continue Reading →

A Quieter World

Everyone is stuck inside looking out. Distanced from one another. Public squares are empty. Schools empty. Restaurants empty. All very quiet. Trapped inside our own homes. Stuck with our thoughts. Our anxieties. News blasting loud. Fear and blood by the bucketful. Please, make it quiet. Washing our hands. Humming to ourselves to count the seconds.... Continue Reading →
