Life...

Life...

A Poem by Tori Jones

You call me shy
And mock my every move
You make me fight 
Just to prove myself to you...
Thoughts

You tell me lies
And trap me inside
You make me cry
Leaving me sleep deprived...
Isolation

You tell me I'm not wanted
And pierce my flesh with your impurities
Until I've gone too far
Killing me along with my insecurities...
Depression

You make my heart beat fast
Whenever someone walks past
You make me feel
Like everyone's judging me...
Anxiety

You remind me of everything I've done
Telling me I'll never be good enough
That I'll never be loved
Because I've done too much...
Regret

You lock me to the ground 
Placing chains all around
You make me wanna hide
From the world outside...
Fear

You take everything from me
Leaving me broken and hopeless
You drain my energy 
And leave me restless 
You make me nervous and anxious
Over absolutely nothing
You let me feel nothing but pain and suffering...

this is really good. i really enjoyed the separate paragraphs for each feeling you feel. you can really get the idea of what goes on inside your head. this made me think of Robert Frost for some reason. good poet who lived a sad life. most of his kid died young (birth, suicide, young, etc) you can convert these feelings into good poetry. my personal fav of RF is "stopping by woods on a snowy evening"
like frost's poem, i get a really good description of what is going on in someones head. keep this up!

Sometimes, our minds can be our worst enemy, as it constantly tells us that we can never be good enough. I like how you've personified these concepts and you talk to them as if they are tangible. Life is one of those things we have to take and mend for ourselves. Otherwise, it may overwhelm us and induce so much anxiety, like you've stated. Well done!
