Alone With My Thoughts

I'm alone with my thoughts at the moment, wondering how to keep them all like ducks in a row inside my head! Argh! They come a mile a minute, raging like a furious flood, doing somersaults! My brain, scrambled eggs. feeling so confused can't keep my thoughts together what is happening!?

Your words portray the maze of thoughts inside the brain brilliantly Edward. The analogy of ducks trying to be in a row then somersaulting in flood is so subtle. Congratulations on your win my friend :)
