Ode to My Mind
Who or what would I be without you?
I need you for everything I do in everyday life.
I wouldn’t trade you for anything.
You give me privacy and protection from the outside world.
My thoughts can’t come together without you.
I still feel so out of place on earth with you.
You make life worth living.
I can say whatever I want, think whatever I want.
Lately I’ve felt distant from you.
It’s not personal, I just don’t know what to do with myself.
You make me this way, but I know it’s not your fault.
This constant fear and anxiety inside you is like a cancer.
It brings me down, but I want you to be stable again.
Not caring what anyone else had to say or not caring what they thought.
Now it’s just constant overthinking.
I don’t know why me. It affects my sleep, everyday activities, and everything in my life.
But you pull through for the minimal good times we can share.
I have no-one else to go to but you.
You’re my shelter, but I also get consumed by your thoughts and your insecurity.
This is basically a letter to myself, but get better soon.
With no you, there is no me.
