Living on the margin
Too close to the edge
Clinging by the fingertips
To lifes windowledge

Perpetually wound up
And overcome with stress
Is it any wonder
Everythings a mess?

All my aching muscles
Are like knots in stainless steel
Until the strain transmits mental pain
I swear that I can feel......

We all have that feeling sometimes, you express it very well. Now, I hope you can relax.

Thanks Ida, I am definitely relaxed I guess that comes with age like it doe's with a fine wine. That was written around 12 years ago & I am now so relaxed I'm virtually comatose!
