I Need A Vacation (From Myself)

Just something I wrote up last night. Well, this morning. Like, 2 am, literally.

"2am and I'm still awake, writing a song. If I get it all down on paper it's no longer inside of me, threatening the life it belongs to." -Anna Nalick, Just Breathe.


They say I'm out of my head, but oh how they are wrong. I'm so stuck inside my head, over-thinking and over-anxious and over-exaggerating every emotion until I've over done myself and I fry my emotions and then I'm numb for the first time in months of TOO MUCH. And you look at me and say that I should smile and I robot it because I don't feel anything and then I actually am happy and soon after the emotions take over again.

You don't understand. I'm not out of my head, I'm too far inside it and I'm trapped and I wish I could get

Out.
