cerebral meltdown

woke up on the wrong side of this
because my brain wont let me forget
a heavy weight rests on my chest
i start my day with another test


my vision blurs from rushing thoughts
bringing me to a fucking hault
demanding that i listen now
from silent whispers to screaming shouts


caught up in this, my weeping heart
is once again sliced apart
thoughts digging into open wounds
grinding salt thats burning through


the blood that flows from gashes left
by my thoughts that never rest
is pouring out inside of me
poison pain is flowing free


burning me like liquid fire
black blood igniting a funeral pyre
inside my chest the burning pain
sparked by thoughts within my brain


just bearly has my day begun
and already my brain has come undone
melting down inside my head
and spilling over with burning dread


with my bleeding heart i struggle to
do the things i have to do
find a way to distract myself
and hope that it fucking helps
