The Battlefield of My Mind
It was like my psychosis was bombarded by my kindness.
All things that bestow internal leverage against my hope
left a fragment of my soul…
The slanted bevel of the raging reverie became my friend.
I sought fear at times, but it seems like freedom did derelict
me when I was weak.
Will I finally seek a resolution to ease my anguished mind;
or will abandonment be my one and only reason to exist?
I have fallen down a sinkhole of misery’s hollow grave,
needing love to survive; craving reasons to follow dreams
I longed would come true.
Hoping one day this life is just an illusion I can break free
from without the worry of pain leaving me breathless…
