Sundays when I’m stuck in bed,

With painful thoughts within my head,

I should have stayed at home instead,

Now the duvet hides my weary head.


The Fear

All encompassing,

Fear cripples the strong,

Striking neuropathological  shards,

Into hearts, minds,

Into souls,

My soul,

Strange, for my fears,


Mondays that ruin Sundays,

Clocks, ticking down,

What may never happen,

Catastrophised into Armageddon,

Spiralling into tempests,

Harmful hurricanes,

Striking tsunamis,

The reality,

Nothing to concern,

But concern,


The Fear
