Shut Up - Poem by R K Summers

Shut up
Shut up
Shut up
Voices, voices in my head
Screaming, screaming want me dead
Kill the maggot
Squash the fly
Slit the lips
And stab the eye
Block the noises
Cut the wire
Stop them screaming
Quell the fire
Rip the tongue out
Root to tip
Pull the plug
And cut the drip
Voices, voices in my head
Monsters lurk under my bed
Scared of darkness
Scared of me
Scared of who
I might really be
Watch the firefly
Dance round and round
Catch its light and
Keep it bound.
Stop the noise
Stop the noise
Shut up
Shut up
Shut up
