Confused by the cacophonous voices in my head,
Reason has been replaced with paranoia.
Alarmed by my self-destructive tendencies I am restrained,
Zipped into a strait-jacket of my own making.
Yielding to the voices clamor, I surrender myself to insanity.

For Andrea's 5 Letter Word acrostic contest

(This is a work of fiction! I don't hear voices and I
am not self-destructive. Just so you know)
