"Dictator in My Mind" by George Mason

in #poetry3 years ago (edited)

Tightening of the stomach, the thoughts won't go away.

It has me by the throat, I try to be different but it's noose gets tighter.

I am walking dead as the clock is ticking, I can see it coming, every day more will be taken until I am standing with nothing.

Unable to sit down and unable to sleep, humbled and shattered in a wasteland of my own mind, I am nothing and nobody, it will all be taken.

Self protection is now self destruction, they are in my emotions and wont ever leave, the one thing I had left was me, I am now my greatest enemy.

I used to be something, now I am nothing.



(Howard Hughes; who suffered from chronic Obsessive Compulsive Disorder)
