Between The Ears



Between the Ears

I carry on inside my head,
Running back the latest times
Slaying all the dragons
As they terrorize my mind

Mocking me accusingly,
Putting doubts inside my head
I took the love between us
And believed in all my shame instead

Entangled in a flury
Of my hopes and all my fears
What uncertainty can do inside
When the mind takes over here

I looked for absolutes inside a world where all was gray
I watched him go , and lost him
I couldn't keep my fears at bay

He looked at me - into my eyes,
Spoke more than words could ever say
I saw love and heartache mirrored in him
As I watched him walk away.

By Sandy Sinn

About this poem

When we think too hard sometimes, we rationalize, minimize and diagnose our thinking to suit our need for control, power, comfort and/or gain. We sometimes don't allow ourselves to face our fears and dream bigger or to just allow something wonderful to continue in us. This poem is about this type of thinking ruining her chances at love.

Sandy Sinn

Sandy Sinn is a Southern California native who enjoys anything creative and aesthetically appealing. Ms. Sinn suffers from bipolar 1 disorder, and advocates for the mentally ill. She uses writing as a form of healing and reflection surrounding the intense emotional experiences she endures daily from the "highs" and "lows" associated with bipolar disorder. Many of her poetry is dark, but darkness has been her companion for as long as she can remember. She began writing poetry around age 9 to cope from the dysfunction at home, and realized the power of Art back then. She could make others feel what she wanted them to feel through her short stories and poetry. Since then, she has written hundreds of poems, and also specializes in writing erotic mini reads which are published on various social media platforms. She owns a custom erotica service, of which she is the sole writer for, and is working on publishing her first book in a trilogy series of dark , redemptive poems. She wants to share with the world her "gift set" of books in hopes of helping those who are struggling emotionally to find the hope they need to go on. Ms. Sinn believes if we could read a poem, book, or other piece of literature, and feel some type of way about it, then the artist was successful. "Art unites us all together, because at the core of our existence, we all experience the same emotions regardless of the circumstances we are in." -Sandy Sinn more…
