M.E.M.

Relentless Breakdown

One thing is all it takes to tip the scales.

My mind is fragile; it can’t take much more.

Stuck in a cyclone, my mind off the rails

Hyperventilating, then on the floor.

My arms go numb, from shoulder to finger

Like carpal tunnel, my hands frozen shut

This sensation is one that will linger.

Heart rate increases, then stuck in a rut

White hot tears streak my face like liquid fire

Holding back the sobs gives me a headache.

My body never seems to want to tire.

It’s shudders, that make my body quake

I’ve reached new cataclysmic proportions

My mind goes blank and creates distortions.

    Well Done! I usually just pace the grounds back and forth!
    Best to you Sir

      Romantic: You seem to know what's going on. In the unlikely event I'm wrong, (see below) could you you give me a hand , straighten me out.
      I'm worried that MPS might (if it hasn't already happened) suffer a bot invasion.

      Please explain in (would you believe?) English?
      Massive leg pull?

          Dave, this is the translation, sometimes on the site the the words end up in symbol notation, they just need translating.

          You? another bot?
          Deprogramme yourself and let your parts go for recycling.

          That is how copy/paste interprets your rubbish. Think they've got it about right..

          Hello Andy! Have you assumed a new role; are you Chief Bot or just Bot Representative? How should I address you? Are they/you planning a massive takeover, when all responses will be in the form ??? ?
          But before the situation goes really down the gurgler then it should be incumbent upon someone somewhere to answer the following questions:
          How? When? Why? Who?

          Kind regards, Dave
          PS Instructions re the location of a 'smiley' you supplied earlier did not yield any result. So until such time as this little issue is resolved, you will have to make a guess as to whether I'm kidding or not, won't you?
