How to destress

what do you do
when your head is in a mess
how to destress
advice, please?
who am I kidding
I should learn
To take my own advice
Sometimes
so…
Now I shall
Take a long
Hot bubble bath
Read my book
and chill out
Tomorrows another day

SO JADED

I AM WORN DOWN
BEATEN
I AM SO JADED
BUT STILL
STILL I GO ON
I RISE UP
DO WHAT I NEED TO
TO SURVIVE IN THIS WORLD
I AM STRONG
DESPITE THINKING I AM NOT
I SHALL CONTINUE
TO FIGHT
DESPITE
THE OVERWHELM
EMOTIONAL INSTABILITY
AND PAIN

Giving up

I sit here
Darkness swallowing me up
Anxious thoughts
Tears fall
As I try to speak
But
No words come
I am numb
Numb and alone
I say a silent prayer
But who am I praying to?
I pray the feelings subside
I am unable to hold in the tears
Silently they fall
As my dog sits beside me
Looking at me
Nudging me with his soft warm nose
Oh how I hate
This dark night
I want to just give up
Give up this fight
