My Mind, A Dangerous Place


A Place, my place

A place where I fit

A place I can hide

A place that’s mine

I would cover it

with colors of comfort

I would soften the blow

with pillows fluffed

and welcoming

but the reality is

my mind has been tainted

and contaminated

I have seen too much

and thought too hard

I have studied monsters

and in the process

I have been consumed

There is no safe, fluffy place

as long as my mind

holds me captive
