Men~ta~lly un~sta~ble........

A Poem by MandaBear
"

just something i came up with after being sick for almost a week. hope you enjoy

"

We have you here and we can't let you go.

You can't run and you can't hide, 

Where to go? What to do?

Screaming and yelling will do no good.

Arms and legs up in knots like a puppet on strings.

Mouth taped to limit your pleas.

You can stare with those pretty eyes such a tease.

No one can hear your silence no matter how hard you try.

Feeling cold and hungry unaware of your fate.

Lost and hopeless for any survival.

Thoughts wondering in your mind.

Will I get out? Will someone have mercy?

We have you here and we can't let you go.

You want to run ; you need to hide.

Where can you go if there is nowhere to be found?

How can you escape somewhere that doesnt exist?

Your lucky to leave here alive you barely made it.

There is a trigger under your mind just waiting to fire.

The walls are closing all around faster and faster.

You better get under control before you get hurt.

Deep and ... a little sad, we can definitely catch the feeling of oppression you tried to show us :)
