when the thoughts run ‘round and ‘round,

out of control and undirected by conscious thought,

heading down paths you’d rather not travel,

then solutions that seem insane and incomprehensible

to those not privy

to the chaos that is churning within

are in fact the only logical response.

survival mechanisms of blood and pain and twisted coping,

misunderstood efforts to realign and reset the thoughts

and stop the unbearable circling.
