Poem

Iโ€™m here again, a home so far,

From what I imagined heart to be,

Love to be,

So far from my own self, my sense of joy,

Iโ€™m here again,

Where images are,

Where thoughts dwell,

And memories unseen claw out at me

Iโ€™m lost in dreams where nightmares wake

And sleeping just for les vivants sake

As hair tumbles down, and nails tear down,

And I stay down,

And I stare down,

At nothingness, at blackness, at a glimpse in to what is not mine,

With eyes closed and lips sewn,

And hands tied,

And heart bound,

Iโ€™m here again.
