Overthinking

Overthinking
Its like a tidal wave
A tsunami
A paradox in mind
A bird cage with thoughts combined
Like incompatible birds
Their all together
Hurting each other
Killing each other
And the bird cage is being destroyed
From the inside out
The paint is slowly starting to chip
The beautiful designs are fading
The lock is rusty and coming off
And the birds are all coming
Out

I like how the last word is on a different line from the rest of it! My only complaint is that "Their all together" should be "They're all together." The image of birds destroying the cage they're in is superb, and disturbing considering your meaning. Well done!
