This is a poem I wrote about my experiences with paranoia. I was able to find relation through fishing and repair within that relation. I have also worked through this problem and the anxiety it carries by bringing it to the surface.
This poem should be read like you would normally read something (top to bottom). But also can and should be read in reverse. This represents the continuous relay of paranoid and intrusive thoughts I experience. Take care.


Voices in my head, bleeding, and bleeding
My thoughts are first intrusive and then they are misleading

The fisherman's journey has come to an unwarranted close
His catch hooked in the mouth and out through the nose
Casting on the surface only to sink deep
My thoughts they cause trauma but before that they creep

Bleeding and Bleeding

The fisherman realizes that he might soon take his prize
But he knows how to force his entrance to win the fish's demise
Rod in his hand and bait on the hook
My mind's reasoning is taken from me until I am shook


The fisherman with rod and tackle in hand
He examines the waters to lure in this unwelcome demand
Loading up his boat and setting out on the lake
My thoughts are not mine this is a mistake


The fisherman wishes today to catch his prey all alone
As he departs from his distanced home
Voices in my head, bleeding, and bleeding
I am internally yelling only wishing to be screaming
