Ive been told I should see a therapist

I agree, but Im kind of reluctant too

Im pretty sure two ideas would come




the first

I should open up, talk, express myself

not hide my state of mind, or behind it


I would talk about it and have, in fact

only to hear those silence inducements

“Yeah but I …” (some help, that)

“Its all in your head” (well, yeah)

“Thats not real pain!” (oh, I see)


the second

I should get out more, find a friend

not be so alone as to be bottled up


I do go out of myself, I have, in fact

tried to be a more un-bottled man

but it doesn’t seem to be working




Ive tried to be alive but cant, Im stuck

my mind spins, useless, for some traction

with hardly anyone near enough to push
