Thoughts circle the wagons in my brain,
Like an old western on repeat viewing.
Discard and demolish to clear my mind,
Yet they return with renewed vigor.
Convince the brain of my happiness,
Medication fools me for a time.
Reassure myself all will be well,
Taking control of those emotional feelings.
Dark thoughts long repressed overflow,
Sanity threatened as flood waters rise.
Rays of sun seem to present themselves,
Dashed hopes… as the clouds reappear.
Sanity was there almost in my grasp,
So close I could almost be coherent,
Solutions glimpsed momentarily, now only shadows.
