Broken Prayer

Intrusive thoughts are like a broken prayer.

Crawling past the landmines of crazy,

Whispering pleas to keep moving,

Hoping someone is listening.

Intrusive thoughts look like a broken prayer.

Navigating gruesome pictures,

Circumventing disastrous outcomes,

Praying I heed my body’s warning.

Being crazy sucks.
