Fragments of the Unhinged

Fragments of the Unhinged

No longer knowing
what is going on in your head
I question my own sanity

Poor schmuck on the phone
Just experienced baptism by fire
How dare he cold call you?

Busy work making lunch
Pretending I don’t hear
Silently praying for the poor soul

The nurse rolls her eyes
Mirroring mine
She understands

Maybe time to ask for medication 
Tomorrow it will likely be my turn 
To bear the brunt of your anger

Call the doctor later
When the coast is clear
Don’t forget, don’t make excuses

Wondering how much longer
This can go on before
Someone other than you snaps
