Psych Ward 666


I'm not expecting to be creative today  
I feel too on edge for that  
borderline psychotic  
this is a painful place to be  
 
snap your brain chemistry changes  
& there it is that fear  
of that place  
 
not knowing reality from delusion  
it's a terrifying thought  
what's more frightening  
is the knowledge this is about to occur  
 
to fall off the edge of a cliff  
you didn't know was there  
holds no power  
 
standing on the edge of it  
eyes wide with horror  
as unseen demon hands  
prepare to push you  
down, down, down  
into hell on Earth  
that's what psych wards really are  
 
people doing time  
pacing the perimeter of the place  
as anxiety chokes you  
it's only a matter of time  
until you pop off completely  
 
& get strapped down  
on their instrument of torture  
four point restraints  
in the padded room  
the constant screams  
a warning of what awaits  
you should your anxiety escalate  
 
then their are the restless nights  
on your rubber sheets  
running into walls  
because they've drugged you  
into the nether zone  
nightmares of the psych ward  
number 666
