I sit and I see, I look and I know,
I understand that something is wrong.
The biggest things cease to matter to me
And the smallest things overpower my mind.
I hear time echoing inside my head,
Tick tock. Tick tock. I place my hands like a shell;
Trying to hear the sea. Tick Tock. Tick Tock.
Waves crash down my cheeks.
Sometimes I close my eyes, curl into a ball.
Clenched so tight it hurts. I can focus on the pain.
And my eyelids are mirrors, I can see into my mind.
Maybe when I open up, it will be O.K.
