Something's Going To Get Me

Updated on June 5, 2013

This condition has rocked me to the CORE.

It will be a major victory today, if I make it out my front DOOR.

The only peace I have is within the confines of this ROOM.

It's frightening to face the world and its impending DOOM.

In a house full of people I am all ALONE.

The voices in my head entertain me, I don't watch TV or need a PHONE.

My unpredictable outbursts have left people STUNNED.

I have few friends and from some of my own family I am SHUNNED.

The walls are caving in as we SPEAK.

Everything around me is falling apart, the outlook is BLEAK.

Who ever that is tapping on my window, I wish they'd go AWAY.

They torment me at night and all through the DAY.

The depth of my fears run wide and DEEP.

I'm almost always awake at night because I'm too scared to SLEEP.


Oh no! They're here and I'm under ATTACK!

If I'm quiet they wont find me, because my room is pitch BLACK.

I feel the sweat drip down my face as they move AROUND.

Hiding in the corner, I'm trembling as I feel my heart rapidly POUND.

Now it's quiet again, I wonder have they LEFT?

Yes! They have and now I can catch my BREATH.

      Thanks Cat,

      I think we all have fears and insecurities but not as bad as this individual. Like the old Bartles & James commercials used to say, "Thank you for your support."

      Man of Strength,

      I think I've had moments like this! :D I should read it to the kiddos on a night the tooth fairy is expected to visit, just kidding! Great emotions... I felt paranoid just reading it!

      Up and awesome ~ Sharing

      Thanks for reading. I wouldn't want to be either. I tried to go inside the mind of a person suffering from extreme paranoia.
