Out of My Mind


Sometimes, I just want to cave in

and I don’t want to face the world.


Sometimes, I just want to scream

and I don’t want anyone to hear.


The whole world, ever ready to

knock me down every time I get up.


Tears stream down my red cheeks

and there’s no one to see, or care.


I feel so vulnerable, so insecure,

like I’m standing naked in front of a crowd.


I don’t know why I do this, why I crumble down

like I’m nothing, like I don’t matter.


I won’t say this out loud and you know it

but please, understand that I need you.


Please hold me while I try and get a hold of myself,

Please just don’t leave me alone…





Have you ever felt like your whole world is falling apart and there’s nothing that you can do? Have you ever felt the need of having someone to hold you while you break down? Comment below!

  2. Moments like these can be very difficult. Often, we need the company of support of someone close to help us through. Lovely write. The emotions came through

    To feel naked is to feel free lovely and anyone who has an imagination has felt low before, because they use their imagination to escape reality to get away from feeling low. Thatโ€™s how one ventures out of their mind, and itโ€™s not a bad thing. We escape by writing, talking or with a little help from unsuspecting places and a little strength.๐ŸŒน๐ŸŒน
    Your beauty and strength sees you through and your writing does wonders, not only for you but for other readers too. A lovely write indeed, out of mind is just a temporary brain freeze.๐Ÿ˜‰
