A poem on mental health
The soft soothing light
Slowly starts to fade
And the grip on my sanity
Begins to degrade

My spirit sinks slowly
Back into the black sea
As I realize normalcy and happiness
Was not meant to be

Devoured once again
By my ravenous psychosis
Death of my spirit
Is my final prognosis

The demons start to appear
As paranoia starts to set in
And the unsettling voices
Are whispering to me again

As I now wander lost
Within my sickened mind
Escape from schizophrenia
I know I shall never find

So as I slip into my darkness
I will go freely without concern
Because from where my delusions take me
I shall never again return
