Suicide Of The Mind

by, Cassandra

Strangling the mind
with every unnatural notion.
Try to weave this web
into something you can see.

How can I explain?
I don't know myself.
It's not like I want
to hide the pain inside.

But my mind won't let me take cover
behind this thing you call the "truth".
It's better acquainted with the lies
and I'll be damned if I tried
to go against the tide.

Don't be concerned, my love.
I'm sure I'll be just fine
safe within my psyche.
Cause as long as I hide
you will never grasp
the wounds I wear
of the self-inflicted kind.

Don't cry for me. I'm fine.
It's only suicide of the mind.
