letter to me.

letter to me.

Dear Heart,
Could you give up
just a little control
of my mind?

Dear Shoulders,
Could you release
the tension causing me
such pain?

Dear Insides,
Could you stop
your violent flipping
and twisting?

Dear Eyes,
Could you close
without crying so hard
every night?

Dear Mind,
Could you clean up
the overwhelming mess
you’ve made?

blue dots.

About what sandra thinks

Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little. Sandra lives in the Northeastern U.S. but dreams of an oceanfront home in Italy, but she would settle for a non-oceanfront home in Italy, too. She loves books, brutal honesty, coffee, and the color black. She hates insincerity, beer, whipped cream, and facebook. And she is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person.

    Dear Sandra,
    I felt every word you wrote, from your heart to your mind and unfortunately at the moment I can relate all too well. Hugs to you my friend. xo

  3. Oh yes. I can relate to every single line. Due to my own paranoia, I had to delay the release of my newest novel. I wanted a chance to listen to it (I.E. have my kindle read it to me) so that I could make sure everything was done right. With the migraines (thanks neck and shoulders) I was editing in spurts, and I wanted one solid read through. Now, I’ve set myself a 12 chapter a day limit so I don’t overwhelm my mind and start missing things. But my insides are eating at me, wondering why in the hell I’m not soldiering on. Sigh. But this is much better than my normal worries, which I’ve dealt with for so long I’m beginning to think they’ll never pass. I’m sorry you feel this way too.

  5. I so hope you get some level of reprieve here. Oh, though head. Can be our own worst enemy, that’s for damn sure. 😕

  8. Are you stalking me? Because this sounds like me the past couple of days. I had a long drive on Saturday and realized that my hands were aching from gripping the steering wheel so hard – not because of any traffic though. Just feeling tense! Ugh. I just want to do nothing but eat taco salad and stare at the tv for a couple days.

    • Do it! I hope you feel less tense soon. It sucks. I find that when I feel the most awful, I need distractions. Denial. Which of course is really unhealthy as it means I’m not dealing with the actual issue(s)… but sometimes, it’s just the only way. Plus cheesecake also helps. Sadly, I never have any of that around…

      • It’s important to process and work through stuff….but it definitely can’t be done 24/7. A girl needs a break now and then! Or in just justifying my desire to not deal with it haha. Either way, I’m with you – I’m choosing distractions for now.

    I am having the worst freaking time getting to your blog! I actually had to click on one of your comments on another blog to get here! I couldn’t even follow the email alert of this post in my email! Stinking WP! Anyway feel this down to my toes today. Muse silent, confidence shredded, blah blah blah… Your words perfectly express it.
