The Voices Inside My Head - Poem by dark dove

The sounds, incredible hope.
The voices inside my head pauses my thought to a straight stroke.
Am I crazy, can I keep alive?
The voices inside my head tells me to commit suicide.
The only solution for this crazy imitation, is to keep a straight face.
And go face down in a safe station.

The voices inside my head tell me to kill the innocent.
The voices inside my head makes me feel like a trapped soul.
The voices inside my head grabs me and won't let me go.
I feel insane. I don't know how to put my life in vain.
The holly water is burning like acid.
The pain like sensation, makes a grin appear on my face.

The voices whisper, the grim reaper is coming.
Death, death.
The little children are spinning.
Blood washes down my bread.
I want you gone.
I need you dead.
I will kill and not know,
Waking up normally.
I'll forget all and let it go.
But as night falls.
The voices in my head whisper kill them all.

    I like how this poem goes round in a circle, using the repetition of the voices. The third stanza especially builds up the tension leading up to the ending. Dark and powerful. (Report) Reply
