Trapped in my mind

My mind raided

My heart throbs
My legs shake with unease

I messed it up
They both tossed me
To the curb like an empty
McDonalds Cup on the road
I ravaged our friendship
I destroyed myself

The thoughts paralyzing
The pain multiplying
The earth demolishing
Before my eyes

Does it get better?
Will it disappear?
Will it let me go?
Can I break out?

All the answers are negative
My problems linger
I can feel the emotions,
Rushing out of my soul
I’m a captive of my own thoughts

I’m done
I’m fine
I’m going to be okay
I’m going to keep going

This is a true story about my parting of my best friends. We are no longer friends so that is what inspired me to write this poem.
