Because They Are Waiting - Poem by beast of burden

Be forewarned of what you put on paper
Leaving open, the door to your mind.
They are reading, patiently waiting
To feed on your weakness they find.

Be forewarned of what words you speak
Making known to all what you feel.
They are listening, patiently waiting,
To ravage your mind of what is real

Be forewarned of the actions you take
That displays your want or desire.
They are watching, patiently waiting
To rip out your heart, bind it in barbed wire.
