Is This Neurosis? – Written Monday 20th September 2021 (Aged 46)

Is This Neurosis?

is this neurosis?
as sit here and i constantly lift the cover
always eager to look down below
have i abseiled my nerves
and served up my just deserts
as i sit here and i constantly lift the cover
just to see how i work

as this neurosis?
stress, depression, anxiety
obsessive behaviour
a loss of touch when it comes to reality
maybe i have neuroticism
as i sit here and i constantly lift the cover
and indulge in emotional extremism

neuroticism, extraversion, agreeableness
conscientious and openness
these are the big five
so is this neurosis?
as i sit here and i constantly lift the cover
just so i can look inside
maybe i truly only trust me
and it is only me to whom i really confide
