Drowning the Voices

There are voices my head
Each with a different story
Of how they see the world
One shrilly talks about pain
The suffering of human kind
And how they don’t deserve
The horror inflicted upon them
The other voice scoffs at it in
Disdain and calls it naive to
Think humans deserve love
Considering the history they
Carry on their shoulders while
These two fight, the third one
Screams at them to shut up
Because of the noise they
Were making in the head and
Causing the headache to stir
Up from his seep who then
Creates a havoc in the head
Till its sore from unwanted
Pain and the voices have to
Be shunned by the pills that
Go in the system as to putting
Them to sleep and haze making
Things unclear but the voices
Refuse to listen and continue
Fighting with same high pitched
Notes over right from wrong in
The world, soon they realize the
Owner is shutting them to sleep
As some very strong chemicals
Flood through the veins leading
To the two voices to drown while
The third sits with his head down
Chuckling bitterly at the fate it
Has to suffer for the mistakes of
The rest of the voices but soon
It realizes how similar it is inside
The head as it’s outside the world
And with this last thought this
Voice is also drowned in to void

On the edge

I feel every fiber of my being
Pulled in to a million directions
Stretched beyond my limit
I want to shatter my silence
Scream “enough” at top of my
Lungs till there is no breath left
Standing so close to the edge
All it will take is just one step
To end this struggle of fighting
Against my so called “life
Going down and down in to
An endless of abyss of darkness
Depression will embrace me
Completely happily as its own
Fighting it for too long has
Drained all the strength I had
Now I want to close my eyes
Rest forever in nothingness
As the idea of eternal void fills
Me I look down from the top
A shaky laugh escapes my
Throat and I take the plunge
Down and down I go in a
State of blankness where
I’m surrounded by white walls
Oh so white and so black they
Flash before my eyes like a
Mirror reflecting my life and
As I shiver involuntary I realize
It’s so cold down here just as
I had wanted “cold and dark
My hysterical laugh echoes
