I see what isn't there
No one yells yet I can hear
The silence screams my name
No one can feel my pain
Inside I'm a mess
Outside I try my best
Happiness made of plastic
Overly dramatic
Surrounded by the night
I see faces and try to fight
I close my eyes and yell, "GO!"
Everyone's a little psycho

A person inside my head
On panic it is fed
Red, the color of fear
The monsters draw near
Scars on my arms
I beg and it harms
Just let me be
One day I'll be free
I curl up and cry
All I want is to die
I've become my own foe
Everyone's a little psycho.
This is my favorite so far

Wow. I'd have to say this is my favorite of yours so far as well! You have great wording in here, and i love how you reference "everyone's a little psycho" but the beginning was definitely what caught my eye. Most likely it's because I've been spending a lot of time with schizophrenics.... but hey... lol. I really did like this piece it was beautiful and the rhythm with short cadence like lines really helped to make an impact.

That show Criminal Minds inspired this. I mean they make all the people on there look like souless murderers but most, if not all, of them have some type of mental problem. I think they deserved a break! I'm glad you like it.

True... but remember psycho is mental. LoL! :) I believe they make the murders on that show so outside of humanity that it makes it had to relate to them and I think that is a fatal mistake. If we found what part of their violent nature we related too then we would be able to understand them better and than predict their behavior better. But then some great man once said... be careful when fighting monsters. if you look into the abyss becuase the abyss also looks into you.

Would I be correct in assuming much of this was based on Skillet's "Monster"?

It sounds a lot like what I'm going through. except no monster is trying to harm me and the psychologist thinks the little voice in my head is very benefital to me because of the jumps in my grades when I let him show me what to do more. I just let him step in, but I do make him not be in complete control

I'm glad your voice helps instead of harms you. It sounds like in your case it may be a good thing.

yes, it is. They just help me do things I normally wouldn't be bold enough to do, these things are good of course. But they're just an extra push in the right direction.
