Analysis of irritation

Mariska 2005 (Minnesota)



Its overwhelming
trying to control this feeling
people tell me to keep breathing
I think i´ll stick with stealing
I can hear the dogs yelping
Its irritating
I miss the hospital
It was much more calming
popping these pills arent helping
I should really stop self harming
on my left arm
I need to work on healing
my emotions are revealing
I wish I could unfeel
All of this
