Advice to a schizophrenic...


I drift and dream between inventions
of worlds that are not there. Illusionary, intentions
bearing down an unreal calamity.

Always after, finding normality.
Uncontrolled avenues of imagination
terrified of the self imposed brutality,
confused by its duality,
addicted to finding an explanation.

Skewed archytypes form dimensions
unknown and unreal. Balanced attention
needed in the prevention
of fatality. Can't focus all on mentality,
advised to curb temptation.
