Obsess

over sacred
words and symbols,
Perhaps discover a sign.

Help me escape from this hollow.
These thoughts and feelings aren't mine.

Manufactured



Injected



Planted



Into the space of my head.

Hidden in salt water droplets,
The words that may never be said.

Give me skin unpicked
And teeth that do not grind.
Grant me passage to elude torment

- The prison I've made of my mind.

What is mind?
                                    What is mind?
What is brain?
                                   What is brain?

Mutter psychologists
And the insane.

I can't decide.
There's nowhere to hide
Amongst the faceless drones.

Sometimes it's easy to forget -
We're no more than skin and bones.

What is mind?
What is mine?
I once thought they were the same.

Somewhere

The boundaries became blurred

Somewhere

Amid the shame.

I'll be the damned
Forever
And ever

I am the one
to blame.

I really feel trapped in a long while hall now, with a hurting light ... You've captured the fear of being locked inside my own mind very well! :)
