my mind

can i toss you out?

throw you away?

bury you deep – far

from the light of day?

is there a disconnect somewhere?

a switch i can flip?

a network of wires

i can grapple and snip?

why can’t you leave me alone?

stop badgering me.

stop bombarding my every thought.

      I am okay – the obsessive compulsive mind of mine – we do not always live well together.

    Oh, sweetie….I am right there with you. I wish those things so often. If you need an ear, I am always here for you. Hugs.

      Thank you – I do appreciate it – I have been blessed with a mind that obsesses over things. It is the obsessing that gets overwhelming and throws me into the dark shadows. I cannot not obsess – or maybe I can, I just have not figured out how yet…..

        Me too. Sometimes, I think it is a gift because it helps with my writing. I write to survive it….and it comes out as poetry. lol You are in my prayers. I wish I could do something to help.

    I can totally relate, my mind is my own worst enemy. Sometimes I just wish I was born with a shut off switch too. Unfortunately that would be too easy. 🙂

  • 10. Brian Hughes  |  August 16, 2013 at 7:25 pm

    Ah, OCD. One of the most misunderstood mental problems in the world.

    Another great one – my mind took over my need for sleep at 2:00 a.m. and here I am almost 4 hours later. My body said sleep and my mind said no way.
