Lava - Poem by alex haywood

Like lava rolling over a fertile field
I see the insidious poisons
ravage your body.
Your mind follows
mine close behind
your life is being robbed
by men in white coats
my helplessness grows
and a profound sadness
spreads over my soul
like a blanket of denuded leaves
I'm scared the men in white
are holding you in escrow
for the men in black
I cry at night
when you can't see me
My tears
searing lava
down my cheeks
I'm scared
