Frantic: wild or distraught with fear, anxiety, or other emotion.
The wheels spinning in my head,
Fighting back with everything it has,
Gasping for air as polluted as my thoughts,
My loved ones.
Bailing out a sinking ship,
Like a creature lurking in the dark,
That corrode my thoughts,
Endlessly warring for control,
burning holes in my present,
gnawing away at my peace.
Despite it all, peaking through the cracks,
of my boarded-up self,
