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

 

swelling

screaming

fit to burst

 

jarring hard

and fast

 

thoughts shriek past

gnashing

never letting the silence

last

 

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
