Losing My Mind - Poem by fallen angel

Pretty sure I’m losing my mind
Reality has been unkind
The ground is moving under my feet
I’m losing control; it’s hard to sleep
Can’t concentrate on simple tasks
Can’t think enough to even ask
People around are all concerned
Shocking secrets they have learned
I’m losing ground I’ve lost control
All this stress has taken its toll
My work performance has gone down hill
I just don’t care I’ve had my fill
Can’t seem to shake this believe me I’ve tried
Yet my loving husband still stands by my side
Forcing me to carry on
Helps me up when I’ve slept too long
Starts the shower and washes my hair
His sweet gentle touch shows me he cares
Holds me tightly in his arms
For fear of myself I would harm.
