Dark Mind, Light Soul

Dark Mind, Light Soul

A Poem by KaoticOrder

The battle inside a person's mind

My mind is toxic
Thoughts are static
Everything you want, I don't got it
So I hide my hurt with how I act.

I speak in curses
riddled verses
of chaos inside a empty void
My heart is old
but my mind is cold
from the many who used it as a toy

My soul wants to give
but my mind wants to take
Heart wants to live
but brain wants to hate

With this dark mind
I lock the pain inside
So no one knows how frail I am
My in my depths
I'm feel as much pain as the rest
But I try to keep it within.

Sometime safety in control mind and thoughts.
"With this dark mind
I lock the pain inside"
The safety of dark mind can close some doors. Hard to hold all things in and protected. Nice flow of thoughts left the reader with something to think about. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.

I have known both and you are welcome.
".. My soul wants to give... but my mind wants to take.. Heart wants to live... but brain wants to hate... " Strong words. Dark mind and light soul's seemed like a combo of 'wounded heart & tranquil love / thoughts'. Nicely pen'd up!
