Toxin to Nerve

Posted on

Shattered and tattered confidence
For losing the battle
The battlefield of mind
To withstand temptations
Someone is
Losing self-confidence
Losing nerve
To live in this hopeless world
To live in this competitive world

Frustration sets in
Jealousy enters from eyes
Boiling with resentment
Brimming with anger
Heart starts to beat very fast
Whole body feels very tense
Nerves tweak tightly
Nervous
The situation is really
That person is really
Getting on someone’s nerve.

STOP!
Do not do anything rash.
Remove the toxins!

I have been questioning the reason of the idiom “getting on my nerve” so I checked it from the dictionary. Then another idiom, which is the antonym of it (second paragraph), inspired me. The second paragraph was birthed out first, but it seemed like the sequel of the first paragraph. Manga is the source of inspiration where I can see different characters in different situation. Kare-Kano is one of them.

The above poetry is trying to depict someone who has a competitive spirit and dislike people who are better than them. The first and second paragraphs are from the second person point of view. Last paragraph is from the third person point of view, a close friend.
