Do you ever feel too many feelings

Like everything in a moment is just

Too much Noise too loud

Silence too deafening

Surrounded by people Claustrophobic no matter how

far you distance yourself Nothing feels right

Everything feels too much The clothes on your back

just don't seem to feel right- No matter how many

times you change

The skin you wear everyday

No longer feels like its


Itching, twitching, squirming

Everything is too much yet not enough

My first thought is to play music Distract my mind

from the overwhelming feelings- But not even

music can help me now No matter how loud I may

play it-

Nothing can drown this feeling out

Songs that used to bring me peace, calm Now

bring me anxiousness and irritable anger

Everything- On

days like these Are just Too much
