Each of us has to deal with

our own personal demons.

Not one of us is free of them.

Mine make me overthink.

I think too much;

then I can’t sleep.

When I can’t sleep,

I think to much.

My mind plays out

all kinds of scenarios;

they may never happen

in real life,

but they become real in my head.

Paranoia sets in -

then I can’t sleep at all.

Much of the time,

the people I care about

have no idea

where I am coming from.

They must think I’m crazy.

I must make them crazy.

I don’t mean to;

it’s the demons.
