Flood

The flood overtakes your thoughts

Taken by surprise

I stepped outside of myself

I was looking down

My outer shell was speaking

My inner self was thinking

My mind is unattached

I’m on overdrive

A part is what I play

An actor is what I am

Why do I do this

Here for all to see rather be

Somewhere else as someone else

Who you can’t tell

I feel compelled to be

What I’m not

I turned to writing for therapy after a long period of ill-health. I have just returned to work. I am a researcher, writer, and Mental Health Advocate.
