A Mental Break

A Mental Break long poem

Photo by kozumel

Sick of paranoia tired of absurd thoughts
Constant grind hearing things assumptions being distraught
If it’s not derogatory voices talking constantly about me
Random thought will make me act quite obsessively
Can’t shake the feeling I’m being watched all the time
Constant stress of security being hacked on pc and phone
Not ever feeling comfort or content of being alone
Under surveillance in my house being judged out in the street
Unable to seek the safety of a retreat
Paranoid for my safety, my dog and uncomfortable at home
People assume and judge making up what they don’t know
I’m aware of what the gossips say interfering how far they’ll go
Scared of gossip and the damage they can cause
hearing their voices my mind on pause
My lack of faith in anyone causes me to over think
My head works overtime pushing me towards the brink
Every time I begin a psychotic attack
Me and reality become completely detached
As if I’m being monitored by hateful prying eyes
Convinced that I’m someone completely despised
I think I’m always being watched in my home
Contiguously praying they would leave me alone
Distracted and convinced I’m overhearing their views
As if my actions are constantly being viewed
I can’t ignore constant comments on all that I do
Why me? when will they gain satisfaction?
I’m completely unable to find any distraction
I know what is bad and what is wrong
A casualty of misuse is what I can’t refrain from
Withering enjoyment with unstable thought
Delusions and mental battles to be fought.

I like writing poetry poems that rhyme Its an enjoyable way I spend my time I like doing DIY, art and craft Drinks with friends and having a laugh I love camping festivals holidays abroad Music gigs of those I adore I enjoy walking my dog everyday Don’t listen to what people say Hate being told how to behave and what to do Can empathise with what others go through Rebel against keeping fit and hate sport A true life learner all self taught I am spiritual not religious anymore Religion causes such an up roar Have belief in the afterlife and aliens too I like learning things of interest to do im considerably happy more often than not Always remember what ive previously forgot Take pride in my work strive to be the best I can be What you see is what you get just me being me.

Take a break, what does that really mean? Break an arm, a foot; break wind or a stick. Maybe, perhaps; but take a look a little deeper is the thought. Re-visit, revise; review, recharge. Take a head break, a spirit

If your heart gets heavy you might need a break, waiting too long could be a fatal mistake, From the top of the mountain to the bottom of the lake, It’s hard to say when we will wake, Maybe never,
