Dark Imagination by Shelby Stormes

Waking up in a hospital bed,
No stranger to the things
lurking in the back of my head-
Dark things.
Things that take away your peice of mind,
leaving you a babbling child,
taken away from everyone
and everything
you ever held dear,
whispering things in your ear.
Bad things.
Things that creep into your window
under your bed, into your closet
waking the shadows,
that creep into your dreams
as horrible, terrible things
that onley you can see.
I cried and I screamed
untill I couldn't breath,
and this is where they take me.
To a mentil hospital
strapped to a bed
listening to doctors
"It's all in your head."
