The consciousness defragmented
Webs of feelings
Reality mixed with dreams

Fear responses
The primal behaviours obtained
Sink into brain matter
Growing, rotting deep inside

I let them come
To wash my trembling body
The silent cries
The glimpses of stupidity

Desired states
Get lost and change their shapes
Deprived neurons fire madly

Out of control
Out of this plane of existence
That link the good and bad

I let them come
To wash away my body
I stand a pylon
Made of metal and of glass

I reflect
The pieces of me consumed
Digested and reinvented
By links without a reason

I let them come
And stop trying to make sense
Their origins forever lost
This is mostly about me fighting my anxieties and trying to figure out why I respond to certain things in ways I don't want to. It is about connections being created in our brains that are out of our awareness or control but give rise to uncomfortable conscious experiences. It is hard if not impossible to figure out where it all comes from. But realising that not everything we believe is true, that facts are often distorted and unreasonable associations are made is a start.

I like this. Also anxieties are similar to fear, it is only in the mind, you are the only one who can create it or destroy it. From time to time I feel it to, but I write, and it goes away :) and I hope that writing this amazing poem it helped you as well. Love and Light. Namaste! :pray:

Thanks for your nice words, yes writing does help clarifying things a bit. And yes you are right, anxieties are fear, but unfortunately fear you cannot directly point at.
