I wish I could create a simple reality within my mind.
A world where I feel calm and confident.

In this world that I'm forced to live in,
I am a ticking time-bomb of frustration.

Too many things on my mind.
Too many problems to face.

Continuous crying inside and out.
Just wanting to scream at the top of my lungs.

Want to be productive but need to relax,
So I write about this world and its unescapable situations.

Fear and pain do not exist
I could shove a nail through my hand and feel nothing.

Adrenaline pumping through my body.
Angry enough to defeat anyone or anything.

Holding all these feelings inside
Letting them out in any way may cause trouble.

Picking at my fingers till they bleed.
Anxiety is my enemy.

Trying to use any coping skills possible.
Nothing is working

Wanting to bloody my knuckles on the wall.
Luckily, something tells me not to.

I need a break from this life and its issues.
I have now crossed my breaking point.

So I write.
It helps to hide the anger.

It forces me to concentrate.
It takes away the heat in my face.

I write and write and I don't want to stop.
For fear that when I do, the feelings will return.
