Been away for a while.
I must have taken a wrong turn somewhere and got a little misplaced. One minute I was out for a walk smelling the flowers and next thing ya’ know I was talking to strangers, eating things I was uncertain of, and drinking potions that smelled funny…. it’s downright maniacal how our mind works…. ?
One minute you feel like everything is aligned, on track, in a routine. Then blast.. complete chaos. All going on inside my little head. Feasting on anxiety and irrational thoughts. I got stuck like a fly in a spider web, unaware it was in trouble until it was too late, it’s been wrapped up to die a slow death, until it is time to be devoured. Barely enough time to analyze what had just happened, with little to no time to compile and list all of life’s regrets.
You know that feeling you get when your hair stands up on the back of your neck? All the senses in your body go completely haywire and start to short circuit, when you are afraid something might be right behind you amid running up the basement stairs?… Imagine that feeling for 5 minutes solid in a straight jacket. No. Seriously, close your eyes and imagine that fright tingling in your fingertips and all the way from your frontal lobe to the tip of your toe….
My life in a nutshell, is what you’re feeling.
