Thought Police

By |August 20th, 2014|Alone, Consciousness|Comments Off on Thought Police

Everything is a story
That my mind creates
Connecting coincidence
Interpretation takes precedence
Transitions from description to dictation
I navigate a self-created narrative
That deforms the trajectory of my steps

The story is too surreal for paper
To voice it, would be aberrant
Compulsively structured ideas
I can’t select the […]

Unearthly Beings

I see them, they are so real.
They fade as soon as they learn that I am awake and see them watching me.
They are concealed with bright yellow light, just a shape is there for me to behold.
Last night it was […]

Shattered

By |July 29th, 2013|Consciousness, Life, Loss, Recovery, Sanity, Senses, Shame, Soul, Trapped|Comments Off on Shattered

I see the life,
I used to know,
Out of the corner of my eye,
The endless possibility and the pain.
The beauty and nobility,
The men and the women.
I feel the peace of life,
Enfold me in the gentle rain.
I see my soul,
In the leaves […]

Deaf Ears / Voices of the Lost

By |June 4th, 2013|Consciousness, Dreams, Imagination, Insight, Introspection, Life, Lonely, Loss, Nature, Spiritual, Voices|Comments Off on Deaf Ears / Voices of the Lost

Darkness falls over the land.
Speech is lost.
Deaf ears hear voices of the lost.
We speak with thick tongues and our voices are those of the message.
To receive, to deny, we care not, only that you hear us, we who are lost. […]

I’m Not Schizophrenic

By |February 14th, 2013|Alone, Anxiety, Consciousness, Insight, Introspection, Mistrust, Panic, Paranoia, Psychosis, Symptoms, Trapped|Comments Off on I’m Not Schizophrenic

I’m not schizophrenic.
But I have a mental illness.
I have schizophrenia.
There is a difference.
I am not an illness.
I have an illness.

I see things, that others cannot.
I hear things, that others cannot.
I am unable to distinguish between legitimate and illegitimate.
Reptiles and snakes […]

Right Unilateral

By |November 24th, 2012|Consciousness, Imagination, Reality, Senses, Sensual, Voices|Comments Off on Right Unilateral

In the midst of this room
I lie still as they put the IV into the crook of my arm- I wince.
A rolled up towel is placed beneath my neck, and
A sheet to cover my legs-
I see flies hovering about the […]

Consciousness

By |August 11th, 2012|Alone, Consciousness, Loss, Nature, Philosophical, Soul, Symptoms|Comments Off on Consciousness

There is no shoe where once one stood,
Silhouette of one man’s soul understood,
Glistening in the stream deepening,
Resilient in the mind not sleeping,
Overcome distraught with deep meaning,
Barriers of consciousness dividing the evening.
