Not sure how much more my mind can take, twisting and bending
in ways I don't think a mind should go.
voices always screaming, yelling, argueing with my conscience
never taking time to breathe.
The headaches get worse, the voices get louder,
the skin that wraps my skull is burning, screaming "I WANT OUT!!!"
no hope, no wish, no foreseeable future, lost?!? maybe....
wish I was born with a refresh button that says "CLICK HERE"
the deeper with in the deeper the darkness, i seclude myself
into the darkness, it embraces me, it cradles me, it shelters me
from societies evil disasters, human kind, the downfall of eternity,
but not my downfall, I am protected within this darkness
the voices are demanding but the mind is controlling, and
the darkness keeps the voices from piercing my eyes
and escaping into what society deams "NORMAL"
