The Voices

I've been birthed in the Devil's palms
singin all his favourite songs
and I knew it all along
soon I'll join your hateful throng
concentric circles seared in my head
interlocking spiderwebs
weighted with crimson dew
homekeeper's eyes on you
died and reborn every night
freshly terrorizing sight
poison barbs flung forward
infecting all around me
frothy mouths spewing hate
misguided sawing teeth
vaporize my solid state
handed world destroying weapon
no-one to kill
amnesiac memories severed
frozen lungs are filled
with the lies of brighter hours
left behind to drown
seas of my own misery
the hatred pulls me down
thoughts disowned my a cavalcade
of blinded minds alabaster made
uselessly I pull the shades
laying in a living grave
handed key to heaven's gates
no-one to save.
Born to slay, bred for death
fire brand twists on my neck
happiness a foreign sheath
pain my faithful loving pet
they're always watching me.
laugh until I find your keep.
No-one will hear you scream.
Soon the din will cease.

Uhm smoothie wanted a comment...ummm this ones about voices I hear daily, I've been dealing with psychosis since I was about 11, but it drastically increased with the onset of major depression. So Ive been battling with this for a while, so most of my poems are about this fight. They don't like me very much.
