This is a poem I wrote today. It's about my old medication.

Prison of Powder

Double-sided nightmare,

lack of friends and lack of care,

nothing outside will compare,

to the feeling inside.

Broad minds lack focus,

tunnel vision is my purpose,

duty is my only real motive,

inside this mind.

It’s a prison of powder,

a prison of dust.

locking me up from the inside out.

Down the hatch it goes till I’m out.

The capsule bomb goes down my throat,

explodes inside and destroys my hope

killing my emotion and killing my feelings

my mind alone and tired like a starveling.

I’d like to stay and talk, but time is short

losing time ends up giving me remorse.

I don’t want loneliness, but sacrifice is the deal.

Success is my only zeal.

Knowledge is my lust,

I live for the letter,

I’m an empty drone,

and it’s cold to the bone.

At night I cry myself to sleep,

my only comfort is counting sheep,

the loneliness planted its seed so deep,

I sometimes feel like I can’t breath.

So I ask myself, “at what point am I still human?”

"Fear denies faith. Faith denies fear."
