Padded Walls

Padded Walls

A Poem by AaronFreitas
"

Something different... no not about me :)

"


Wrap me up... strap me up

Throw away the key


Locked in a room, I lay to spoon

With a shadow of me


      Shut them up!!!

      Tell them to stop!!!

      These voices wont cease!


Rocking on the floor, feeling like a w***e

Thoughts unwind


Bite my tongue, just for fun

Where is my mind?


Pad these walls ignore the calls

I must be crazy


Hear the cries my soul lies

Visions hazy


       “Just do it

       kill yourself

       do the world a favor”

I cannot lie the voice inside

Says take my life

So I jump to fly

I fall and cry

But cannot die

So wrap me up, strap me up

Throw away the key

It’s obvious this padded room

Is the end of me,

Woah this one's actually pretty scary but I enjoyed reading it :D I especially love the third, fourth, and the last two lines, because it gave the feeling that there's no escape not just from the padded room, but from the condition itself. Great poem and I'm glad I read it :)

Thank you very much my Brazilian friend :) Appreciate your review
Reminded me of the old days when many were locked up. Now we have gone to an extreme the other way and not taking care of the problem which is for the most part seen in our homeless population. Very nice piece and well written. I feel sorry for anyone in this situation. They have little or no control.


I have always said the only reason they don't lock me up for being crazy is the voices don't both me.. You remember the playthings. haha

Wow.. I'm not sure what to say.
It's an emotional write.
It did something to my heart that I can't explain...
Feeling despite... feeling fragile...

It's so saddening to see how being alone can destroy a persons mind and drive them quick to insanity. I've actually had dreams of me being in a padded room in a straight jacket and I woke up short of breath because it had felt so real...great write and the rhyming works perfectly to help make it flow.
