Invaders

Worst thoughts of my mind

Suddenly arrive uninvited

Attempts to ignore only tightly loop and bind

Slowly making it harder to fight it

In the end I find

I must acknowledge it not losing sight

That which comes unbidden

Cannot be ignored away

Attempts to keep it hidden

Invite a longer stay

When the mind is twisted and ridden

Your rituals have no sway

Speak of it

Do not run

They fade away

When faced with light and sun

Gene G. McLaughlin 2016

For those whose minds get away from them sometimes.

  1. I can relate so much. It’s just that sometimes them thoughts arrive and there’s nothing you can do about it..
    I love this actually. Good Job.

  3. Nice rejuvenation of the theme! “Micro-missives” is cool too.
