demons rule inside my brain
with thoughts of hate, and death, or pain
my mind is like a simple cage
with bars of fear, self hate and rage
i cant get out, why even try?
ill just embrace the fact that i
am stuck in this prison, a mental cell
insanity becomes my hell
i feel alone, through day and night
feel born of sorrow and of spite
i just want out, but all can see
the door is locked, and has no key
prisoner to my thoughts, i crave
nothing but my well earned grave
praying to God to not be me,
is death all that can set me free?

This is so perfect. I can relate x100000000. So much emotion in this. I love the last two lines. This is an amazing poem.

This was well written and it touches my heart 'cuz I relate so thoroughly. Writting helps doesn't it? It does for me. Keep writting, I can tell you have a lot to say.
