Finding myself lost in my mind

by R4G3 on April 4, 2014   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I guess I have nothing to really say except that I'm pretty lost right now. I'm stuck in my own mind, the only thing I can do is express myself through writing and drawing and listening to music. Words can barely express anything of mine except when I have the keyboard in front of me, when I can use more of my limited vocabulary to say how I feel and why I feel that way. This is the only time that I can really say what I am and why I am and how I am.
And in this case, not only am I truly depressed, but I am depressed over my own thoughts which I can not control, the things running rampant within my skull, closed off from anyone else. To say I am lost is really an understatement in need pf elaboration, so I will say that I am as lost as one might be if they were dropped, blindfolded, into a rainforest full of predatory animals and nothing more.
I guess I can really use a pick-me-up.
