Written by Not Quite Alice and HastyWords


Don’t worry…there is no cure

No plan…no safe place to run

My mind is rejecting my sanity

A story with no happy ending


How can I make this right?

Can I go on?

Standing on the ledge

And the safety net is gone


He keeps knocking on my door

Handsome and creative wanting me

But I can see the evil in his eyes

Tempting me to lose myself; insanity


No, I must stay strong

Don’t glance, don’t peek

You can do this

Just say those words


Though the mantra is soft

It is steady and strong

Over and over I speak

Until into my brain it seeps


Breathe in, Breathe out

The evil shall be defeated

Looking into your eyes,

I know just what to say


Looking into your eyes

The words are on display

The darkness fades away

And peace comes out to play

  1. Oooohhh… dark and mysterious… I like the way the picture works with the words. The picture looks like you might be doing something dark and mysterious… or cleaning out a barn with your bare hands.
