It’s All In Your Head

Trigger Warning. Mental illness.

Feelings lurk beneath the surface.
A weighted sadness trying to drag me down.
I simply don’t know why.

I wish I could suck it up,
Get on with it, be strong.
All those other keep calm and carry on sentiments.

Thoughts entangle my mind,
Worthlessness infects me.
An unyielding self doubt,
I am a burden to those I love.

Will I ever be good enough?
Fatigue and pain feed on my energy, like a mosqito feeding on blood.

Inadequacies seem constant.
As I struggle to keep up,
Tiredness becomes the norm.
I am exhausted.

Yet thoughts remain,
Niggling away.
Self depreciation.
Going round and round,
Inside my head.
