Monsters

A Poem by Wordwhirl
"

Monstrous Vortex.

"
They creep along my temples
Biding Time
Timing Attacks.

Panic rises in swells
And I fumble around
For Distractions.

Smiles. Words.
Flowers. Songs .

But the Pills fail.
And Bow down
To the Monsters.

And I slip into
Another viscious vortex
Of maddening Thoughts.

Those thoughts can certainly lead to a whole world of hurt. This reads many ways … is the writer suffering from migraine ... or are they bipolar and endure manic mood swings. Either way, your poem has the right amount of chaos to impart the meaning to the reader.

Well done, WW

A love it!

Thoughts in the night while I try to sleep are the monsters we should keep an eye on as they prevent us from getting a sound sleep and rest.

Much is said here. Isn’t it true about monsters? I like the beat of this piece and its imagery. Well done.

Thank you Tabby! Happy to read you liked it.
I am bipolar, so I'm very familiar with racing ridiculous thoughts. Your brief word portrait makes me think your narrator is the kind of person who does not want to impact others by bouncing around out in the open, but rather the kind (like me) who goes undercover to minimize the impact to others until I hit a level stretch again. I tell myself: it's only a mood & it will change. My moods don't define who I am & I don't want to broadcast them, but just sit them out & get on with the real me (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Interesting and morbid. I liked how you capitalized certain words :). Is the narrator mentally disturbed?
