j-flamingo reflections

Inspired by the grace and beauty of the flamingo, my life reflected by my love of reading, writing and creating.

NaPoWriMo #14: Mental Twist

There is a pain

a twist inside

I don’t understand

buried deep within

I can feel it now

almost as if it were

hidden in the shadows

amongst tiny crevices

yet its twisted and creeps up

through my heart

spiraling, tingling

a hurtful sensation

physically sick

“Anxiety, they tell me

Calm your nerves.”

I can’t - -

I don’t understand why

I thought my life was going great

I thought I was easy going,

Even optimistic

What do you mean, I’m not?

“Medication, that’s what you need

Then it will go away

You’ll function again.”

I try, but it’s strange

and new - -

Actually, I can’t think

I feel


Perhaps before I could


but I’m forgetting about


All I know is

I just hurt - -

There is a pain

A twist inside

I don’t understand.

About this blog

Welcome Readers~to my blog! A tiny extension of myself and my life. Here, I'll share this journey through my top passions in my life - reading, writing, and creating. You can expect to read poetry, view my papercrafts and read design related posts. Every once in a while, I hope you'll grasp an honest feel of my heart. If you haven't noticed, I love flamingos! I think they are beautiful birds. *Thanks for your attention.*
She is pure Alice in Wonderland, and her appearance and demeanor are a nicely judged mix of the Red Queen and a flamingo.
