Voices

oh my god you guys, I’ve finally figured out how to log back into my account after 2 years! two years without my amazing poetry! I am so very sorry. To make up for it, here is a recent poem I wrote back in May. I hope you like it and I hope you all can forgive me for being absent so long!

 

voices, voices in my head

telling me i should be dead

voices, voices in my head

telling me refuse my meds

 

voices, voices all around

i scream but they drown out the sound

voices, voices all around

i just wish that i would drown

 

voices, voices telling me

what to think and what to see

voices, voices telling me

how to act and who to be

 

voices, voices you wont win

i’ll prevail in the end

voices, voices you wont win

i close my eyes and count to ten

Safe and Sound

what do you see when i catch your eye?

i hope you dont see how often i cry

the loneliness inside my soul

has left a big, gaping hole

I need someone to fill it

i need someone’s safe arms

so i dont cave in to myself

so i can avoid all this harm.

help me be one whole person

look into my soul

find the me thats been so lost

patch me up and make me whole.

I need you and you need me

i want to be safe and sound

you dont know how much i long to be

i want to be found.
