In the corner of my mind..

there’s a pile

In the corner of my mind there’s a pile of boxes

In the corner of my mind there’s a pile of boxes collecting and building.

Boxes full of regrets, negative thoughts, failures, doubts, other people’s opinions and disappointments building up higher and higher. 

A pile of boxes full of terrifying thoughts tipping, toppling, tormenting as they cascade all over the floor of my mind.

A voice inside me cries “burn them all.”

Another wants to sort them.

And still another sits in the corner, knees to her chin. 

In the corner of my mind there is a pile of boxes.
