Losing My Mind

I’ve tried countless times

to lose my mind

but it always finds it’s way back to me


I’ll drink it out of consciousness

and run


I’ll sniff it

‘til it’s twisted out of recognition

and hide


I’ll hide behind lies

and smiles

under covers

in darkness

in the company of others


but never in the arms of lovers


here it is at it’s worst

here is where it most hurts




fit to burst


jarring hard

and fast


thoughts shriek past


never letting the silence



and that’s the hardest part

no matter how hard I’ve fought

I’ll only ever chase

that perfect place

of silence between

each thought
