Seeking to Confess

On a vacation I need to travel

Into the unknown annals of Hell

Seeking a date with Mr. Devil

Conveying him that I’m on peril

It’s him who rescued me back then

It’s him whom I obeyed back then

He is the one who can help me quell

When I’m there in the annals of Hell.

 

Eyes moisten often when they see

The small shrub has grown into a tree

The stem swelled up with dee...

Overthinker

 

cling-clangs against my brain

feign solutions but they’re all the same 

 

feasts for frantic fissions 

unbridled, undeniably out of 

 

control

 

the drug I’ve always craved

but can’t do a thing other than

 

think

 

did I say it wrong?

did they hear me right?

 

I’m sure of it 

So unsure of it

 

I may be wrong

maybe all is well

Suicidal OCD.

Have you ever thought of ending it all?
Facing your fear when your backs to the wall?
Crossing the bridge and paying the toll?

Nobody know's the feeling better then me
I fantasize while in bed, rest assured I can't sleep
Knowing it's me I fear murdering me

Drowning my face in my own reflection
Disconnecting myself from other's connection
Removing my head from self-loathing dejection

Obsession (OCD)

O, they can drive us really mad - our peculiar obsessions.

Are you cleaning all the time or are you buying too many possessions?

 

Or perhaps you are being miserly and keeping all of your savings.

Or may be you need to do or see something in order to satisfy your cravings.

 

Is your obsession so odd that no one else can understand?

Has it taken such a hold that it is getting o...

OCD

I will paint a picture
of my life with a border
a perfect picture of obsessive compulsive disorder
imagine inside a house  above a fire is a
framed painting
the painting is of a scene
inside a house with a painting on the wall
above the fire
and smaller again the painting on the painting
on the painting and it just gets smaller until it's a dot
A single dot left on the chalk board

My Muse Is Dead

Beige walls stand empty where original artworks once hung
A woman, beyond her years in mind and body, sits at her desk
Staring at a screen that, despite vast knowledge at her fingertips
Is empty
The cloud of cognizance that enveloped her has cleared
Ridiculed by those she trusted
"Over medicated"
No more pills
No more gange
Nothing to help control the demons within her mind
There is no feeling o...

4-5-6;

Must touch once, twice, thrice!

Otherwise I must pay the price!

Penetrating thoughts that won’t go away,

Compulsions that haunt me day by day,

Anxiety comes, anxiety goes,

Got guilt, depression and so much obsession.

O-C-D-C

1-2-3;

C-D-O-D

Please leave me!
