Sound Mind.

by cjhale

I'm okay.

Okay.

There's just this.

Screaming. Scr-screaming. In my mind.

Twitching. Fading. Trapped.

What was I thinking?

I'm sorry.

I'm sorry. I can't hear over the sound of my thoughts.

Hello?

Can you hear me? Hear me? Please.

I can't.

Screaming. Crying. Running. Trapped. I can't.

I'm alright.

No. I'm not insane.

I have a sound mind.

A mind full of sound. Sound. Sound.

Fighting with your own mind is a very draining and telling yourself that you are still sane can take some convincing i as many face the challenge daily nice piece

@cjhale I don't think you have anything for which to apologize. What is going on in your mind that is one of the trillions of molecules declares independence then prevents a chain reaction that provides the chemicals that signal well being. A little here and a little there is what makes you different from me. I am an ultra positive lunatic. But I know that I am made of the same stuff you are. It sounds like you need same chemicals and someone telling you that you are pretty, worthwhile, and by gosh people like you until you believe it yourself. You are a dynamite writer. You can do a lot of good for others who are depressed and want to identify. I understand the cutting thing and the poor self-image. Those both can be helped by adding a little chemical cocktail the doctor can prescribe. DON'T SELF MEDICATE it only makes matters worse. Go look in a mirror and write down what you see. Not what you feel nor what you think you should see. You will find a pretty Charlie!

@bernardtwindwil each of my works all stem from my reality, self harm, anorexia, insomnia, depression, anxiety, I experience these daily, this is simply another painful truth. This one stemmed from a monologue that I wrote for my class, it's about sound as well, and I experience bullying of my own making often, I have very poor self image, and my thoughts all seem to condemn me....yeah...so that's how that...yup...Sorry, now the awkward teenager is showing ;)

This was ingenious. The verses sort of flew around inside my mind while reading this. The whole thing with the "Sound mind" has a taste reality. Is it? How did you come up with this central theme? I loved it. I think it gives me insight to other people who maybe struggling. Great piece of work!!!!!!!
