Let Me Rest

As I lie here
a thousand ugly faces fill my mind,
haunting,
taunting,
screaming my name.
Confusion mingles panic
as I strive to understand
all these thoughts and emotions
whirling in my head.
Going round in circles
I never reach the end,
and as I close my eyes,
they scream my name again.

    How horrible, I hope this isn't really true for YOU, sweetie. You paint a strong picture of someone going mad!

    I like here you were going with this, but I feel as though it could be explored further. 'Going round in circles' is also very cliche' but I understand and connect with the confusion you portray, keep it up x
