My Own Mind

by Allie   Jan 6, 2016


I'm trapped in my own mind, a world of darkness, a place so cold and lonely. I'm searching for answers, I'm looking for the light. I'm stuck in time where one moment repeats and repeats. It's driving me insane. I'm trapped in my own mind and can't seem to figure out why. I hate myself for what you did to me, I hate the fact that you took apart of me that was meant for someone else, someone who cared. You used me, you abused me. I get sick to my stomach knowing I'm stuck in time, because of you. You still control me, I'm constantly on repeat. I'm stuck in my own mind but I've figured out why. That's exactly where you want me to be, asking myself why, blaming myself. You made me pick up that razor and you made her pull that trigger. See our stories aren't so different. We let someone take control of our mind, we let them choose our fate. If your stuck in your own mind, you gotta get out. That's a dangerous place to be.

    Alot of people could relate to this piece. Very deep and meaningful.

    'see our stories aren't so different. We let someone take control of our mind, we let them choose our fate.' That's powerful and for many people very true, we are all quite similar if we look closely.

    Hi Allie and welcome to the site.

    A dark and claustrophobic poem from you here. I love the last couple of lines: "If you're stuck in your own mind, you gotta get out. That's a dangerous place to be." - very true.

    Well done and keep writing,
    Ben
