Captain Cowardice

Withdrawing to my jilted world,
I sit upon a private spindle,
Looming over silken whorls,
And licks of flame from fire kindle.

At the wheel of my creation,
Concealed from human intervention;
I escape their every expectation,
In this pool of my invention.

The epitome of a selfish need,
Shunning every sect of society;
I pick my brain until I bleed,
Overrun by my anxiety.

Like a nightmare with no end,
My twisted mind begins to spin;
As exit lights begin to dim,
Looks like it's time to sink or swim.

I steer this ship right off the shelf,
Without a single witnessó
Cowardice convinced himself
That it was no one else's business.

I am NOT suicidal, so please don't worry for me. This is perhaps more of an awareness poem... You never know what's going on in someone else's head.

If you ever feel this way, please reach out...

If you ever feel this way, please reach out to someone! More people care than you'll probably ever know! I don't care if we've talked before or not, send me a message... I'll be a listening ear. There is also a suicide prevention hotline: 1-800-273-8255

I have been experiencing bad anxiety this past week, which is adversely affecting my mental health and writing process, hence my recent withdrawal from DUP.
