Voices - Poem by Rene' Bennett

What was that
What is it you said
Who are these voices
I hear in my head?

They tell me to run
They tell me to hide
They say they're my demons
Living inside

Feeling anxious
By the door I stand
It seems that no one

Sometimes I need
To be alone
Can't even talk
On the telephone

Panic, fear
I can't avoid

I've been down
For so long
I can't get back
To where I belong

I walk, I talk
And I breathe
Cut me deep
And I will bleed

Yet, these voices
In my head
They tell me
I am dead.
