My mind sometimes gets taken over.
Filled with darkness I did not want to let in.
It arrives whenever and takes ahold of me.
I take a walk. I feel dizzy.
I try to breathe and it doesn’t let go of me.
I can’t escape.
It drives me insane.
I see someone up ahead.
As I get closer, the person is sitting on the bench.
I decide I should sit down and try to relax.
This person doesn’t notice my presence.
I hear them cry.
They look up and I walk away.
In disbelief of what I saw.
I run faster because I know what’s coming.
I’m trying to be better. I will.
That was the old me.
