Don't leave me alone with these thoughts in my head
They fill me with fear ~ they scare me to death
They darken my mind ~ they poison my soul
It's blackness I feel and I remain in this hole
The choice is not mine ~ the venom runs freely
My body is paralyzed as my mind is left reeling
I barricade myself and huddle in the dark
I know it's not me ~ the contrast's too stark
There can be no witness to this dark other side
It's momentary emptiness that I'll not let abide
I will ride out this storm ~ I know soon I'll be fine
As the venom runs its course and I walk this fine line.

Just like you, I wear many hats. I'm a mom, a teacher, a friend, a daughter, a sister, and a writer. I choose to laugh (and talk... and write) about my problems because crying takes too much time.
