The Depths of Me Jan 20 2011

No one will fully understand, 
the personal effects of my disease.
What I experience, how I feel,
and the horrible things that I see.

I'm trapped inside this mess called life,
stuck with the visions, the sounds and the noises.
Escape theres none, it follows me everywhere I go,
with the constant demands of the voices.

Locked down, all alone in the dark,
yes, my head is screaming, "You are mine!"
I am held hostage by my own insanity,
to me a victim if you had to define.

The many nightmares that I have,
haunt me while I sleep.
I hide away from the rest of the world,
but my fears run too deep.

Crazy I will always be,
that will never change.
Accepting that this is who I am,
misunderstood, alone and strange.

    Deep and sorrowful write. I wonder if anyone really understands anyone else. thank you for sharing this. Never give up in the battle against your inner Demons. For even if you can't silence them You must never succumb to them. I don't know where such inner fortitude comes from for I have none myself, But based on the strength it must have taken to share this poem I am quite sure you do. May your heart, soul and mind combine to turn your plight into your power. Never give up!!!
