Pulp


They made his mind a molding mess
A slow and solemn nest of thought
A brooding storm of deep distress

Confusion ruled his darkened heart
Enraged at what his mind became
A slow and solemn nest of thought

As reason weakened and decayed
He bashed his limbs and tore his flesh
Enraged at what his mind became

His anguish flared a bitter flame
When it would surge with burning force
He bashed his limbs and tore his flesh

He wished for death with yearnings fierce
A wish he never could perform
When it would surge with burning force

He longed to leave his broken form
Destroyed by psychiatric drugs
A wish he never could perform

The poisons flowed within his blood
They made his mind a molding mess
Destroyed by psychiatric drugs
A brooding storm of deep distress

Poem of the Day

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
