I had a dream about a memory So vivid I recall conversations My subconscious made up a story And turned it into nightmarish creations Mimicked the past, I got lost for too long Paralyzed, I'm no longer strong
Head can now explode But my hair rises black Higher than this Feeling inside like I am, Screaming the sound could send waves In new directions. Capture or let go... They both make me feel Insane Unable to do anything else The roar is paralyzing me Get me into the black hole already I need the other side Rage-Light, flashing You would be blind by now But I see too much Scratching out your eyes.
This one written about the chaos felt inside when trying to help a mentally ill loved one who still can not see and the broken, broken system for treating our seriously mentally ill in America.
Be weary of where you put your feet There's a snake hiding in the grass Slithering in and out of holes Waiting to attack Although, unseen, his agenda sure His plan set into motion One false move, he will strike you Without a trace of emotion He has a way of getting close Manipulating along the way Just as you think all is safe He’ll cut back the other way Many are fearful, encountering the snake It’s the position that he holds Using it to paralyze And make your blood run cold But he’s just a snake, like any snake A tail and a head Separate the two of them You’ll find that he is dead
Her trojans in my head Even when she’s out the door My body inside my bed Outside, the rain starts to pour I see her polka-dotted rain coat And I long to call her phone My fingers don’t do what they’re supposed to Paralyzed by those **** trojans All in my head, attaching to other nerves My thoughts crowd around her The image stark in my mind She remains so fine and beautiful But, all I want is to forget Erase, delete all the regrets
