Schizophrenia - Poem by Jenna Dandurand

I'm not crazy.
I don't need help.
Not yet.
The only thing that's wrong-
the one thing-
is that I hear voices.
Don't lock me up
in a white room.
Don't put me into
the insane asylum.
I'm not crazy.
I never have been.
Maybe it's you.
Maybe you're plotting
to take over my life.
Maybe you don't want
me to know my own
I'm not crazy-
never have been.
I just hear voices
in my head.
They tell me the things
I want to never hear,
never know about.
But tell me they do.
And even if you do
have a conspiracy
against me,
I know more
frightening things.
And just because I
know, you will
lock me up.
You don't want others to

    To be honest, I really don't like it. Reminds me alot of Tell tale heart, that's the only thing I liked. You should check out some of my poems, alot do with mental disorder. Maybe they will inspire you to write about it in a different way. (Report)Reply
