A relationship with your own mind,
can be a tempestuous one at times.
It is an often bizarre partnership of sorts,
as you both compete for authority.
When providing me with sensible thoughts or suggestions as to a possible course of action,
I am thankful and do anything within my capability to keep my mind safe and well, nurturing it with love.
But, when my mind betrays and torments me, releasing harmful thoughts, projecting dark imagery for no apparent reason other than to inflict harm against my very soul,
I struggle and feel so inexplicably alone.
