Dear Stranger

Please stranger, overtake me I implore,
for I don't want to know myself anymore.

I took a bullet to my brain, deluded memories 
were all that were left to me?

Please stranger, take away my name
for it does me no good in this game.

I took a safety pin to my tongue, but still the aftertaste,
the metallic tang. Morbid I watch the blood drip down.

Please stranger, take my place before the mirror,
for perhaps you will see all the clearer.

I took a sleeping pill, are these memories my nightmares?
Or are all these nightmares all my memories?

    memories of the nightmares or nightmares of the memories, sleeping leads you to this type of third eye perception? Madison
