Darkness Conceals the Mental ill

Images they can’t see, voices come to me

Voices whispering to me, flashing lights images I can’t see, time ran out for me
when hearing the rickety cracks and squeaks down the hall, my darkness falls.
Anxiety! when sleeping becomes a strain, my antidepressant imbalanced brain
while rocking in the dark feeling that chill to my shin, outside the whistling wind.

In my mind! I find no peace, my lonely daily drug lows only seem to increase
living life within a glass jar, maybe the carbon dioxide that comes from my car.
I have long lost the tenderness of a loving touch, they said my mental illness
was far too much, bizarre behavior with chemical complication! an explanation.

Failing family expectations! predictable hormonal dysfunction with hospitalization
suffering! symptoms of stress my UN-stabilized situation, any recommendations.
Therapist treatments for a recovering solution! these fools clearly haven’t seen my twisted illusions, obsessive routines tonight death! before the nightmarish dreams.
