Unleash These Voices

Shouting and tearing are these voices inside
I would scream if only it would make Them hide
I have been hiding Them from the world for so very long
That all I can think is how this world may think me wrong

To let anyone in, I must let Them be seen
But these voices, the things They say are completely obscene
I fear Them dangerous, and possibly terrifying
Yet I must unleash Them, for fear of dying

So I let Them go, my brain violently ripping
And I bend over to vomit, my two hands gripping
Now the voices are out, and I see Them in front of me
"Please leave," I manage, and They actually flee

I collapse to my feet, my cries full of rasp
My head is finally clear, and I manage a gasp
I'm finally alone, and I couldn't be more thrilled
I should be at peace, should be able to sleep, but I am unfulfilled

Though I know not why, I miss the thoughts
That my enemies of so, so long brought
Empty now, unsure of what to feel
I gaze out of my window and begin to heal

    Just in case you thought it would go undetected, I noticed that you always capitalized "Them." Since "Voices-in-my-head" mentally ill voices don't just go away, you must be feeling something else. I wish I could know what it is.  -KMD

    I intend no offense, but for the record, this is just a poem. This is not me, nor does it pertain to me.
