Your voice echos in my mind.
Repeating itself. Words not so kind.
I can’t run, Trapped within myself.
You are forever in my head.
Laying down a blanket of thorns, filling me with dread.
You can’t leave, you will not be banished. You are me. My mind. My Thoughts.
Tales of Torment drip of your tongue.
Melting anything good.
For only the evil thoughts survive.
Ringing in my ears.
Shake away all my fears.
The poison turns into a flame.
Burning my life away.
Or, whatever one calls this existance.
Leave now you must.
It is now all just dust.
You have taken all of me that you can.
Away in the darkness we both are.
Trapped, two souls together,
Yet I feel it is me on the end of the tether.
This happens again and again.
Just as I think I am better, you arrive.
Wicked plans you connive.
My silohuette wraps around itself.
Tossing and turning, trying to break free.
But you are a part of me, you ignore my plea.
I just want to hear a soothing lullaby not a devil cry!
Spirit folding away from my baron heart.
Not allowing me the chance to see through the dark.
Let me live my life, I must.
You owe me that at least.
Filling up each an every crevice of my mind.
There is no space for me anymore.
I can no longer cope with darkness.
For once just let me be, and see the good in life that falls before me.
Please my master hear this wholehearted prayer.
I beg of thee.

This special poem was written to capture the fragileness of the mind. I am sure we all have been in places of our minds where we would not like visit again.
