Wear me down

I wear you out, unable to answer those questions

Simple they may be but hard to me

I wear you out with my anger

As I try to show you who I should be

I wear you out with my sadness

Sadness that never truly goes it just hides

I wear you out with my love

My need for comfort so often

I wear you out with my useless self

Unable to do as you ask because my mind stops me

I wear you out daily because I struggle to live this life

My mind crippling my body, looking for perfection

Perfection that can never be attained

My mind crippling my soul, looking for answers

Answers that can never be found, because they don’t exist.

Heart pulsing, blood pumping, mind never stopping

Even in my sleep your torturing me

Waiting for my body to explode.

    This sounds like something a person with a mental health problem might say or think or feel. Good poem
