Poetry By Namrata & Amber {1} ~ Mental Lockdown

Encased in seclusion, tatters of the mind, threads unpick themselves
unwarranted and confined.
Chaos and conflicts embed and unwind,
battling the uncertainty, with passing time
Upside down reality, shifting situations,
Exposing vulnerabilities
It’s a mad design
Set me free, let me wander
And resign to my safe space, cramping, the sky is deteriorating, surviving in squander
Black and grey, in blue I meander
Disappearing behind the ivory
Sucked into the subconscious ever blaring library, for me to be unconscious, lost in thought, my ego twists thought bribery.
I look around, it’s all abyss, I fight, I succumb,
It’s never ending,
That can’t be it, I whisper to myself,
I sing the hymns, I pray night and day
I flip the calenders but it’s only May
Monotonous grinding, a tape recorder on repeat, rewinding, thought loops whipping,
Shards of the ego chipping,
Latching onto the cliff edge by a fingernail, gasping mind decomposing, stale
Chained in dark, hounded by wailing.

Addiction, an uncomprehending, torturous road to hell

Void and empty, a vacuum of a shell

No where to hide yet a story to tell

Psychological delirium

A mind bending black hole of serum

Oscillations betwixt cold and sickly pale

Into a sweaty hot claustrophobic stale

Murdering interests and drives

Speckling the soul in shuddering hives

Poison tainted veins

I’ll be your master, you’ll be my slave

I’ll follow you into the depths of the well of a grave

I’ll even tear your relationships and families apart

Don’t worry that’s just the start

Sticky quicksand until we part

Turning into a stranger to yourself, how did it get to be this way?

To live or die, this is the mental sway

To face the withdrawals and live another day

Take your pills and shut up

Take my hand, I’ll lead you to spheres of Dante’s hell.
