It’s All In Your Head

Katie’s Words in Dark Corners

Trigger Warning. Mental illness.

Feelings lurk beneath the surface.
A weighted sadness trying to drag me down.
I simply don’t know why.

I wish I could suck it up,
Get on with it, be strong.
All those other keep calm and carry on sentiments.

Thoughts entangle my mind,
Worthlessness infects me.
An unyielding self doubt,
I am a burden to those I love.

Will I ever be good enough?
Fatigue and pain feed on my energy, like a mosqito feeding on blood.

Inadequacies seem constant.
As I struggle to keep up,
Tiredness becomes the norm.
I am exhausted.

Yet thoughts remain,
Niggling away.
Self depreciation.
Going round and round,
Inside my head.

  1. This was supposed to be a bit more cheerful, but it didn’t quite work out that way. Never mind. Just words.

    I’m sorry that I’m needy
    But I’m feelin’ kinda seedy
    I think I might be better off in bed
    You think I’m being lazy
    But I’m going fucking crazy
    And every day just fills me full of dread
    I am taking all these pills
    I don’t take them for the thrills
    They’re to murder all the demons in my head
    I wish they’d go away
    But I think they’re here to stay
    So I think that I might kill myself instead
