There I sat

On a torn musky mat

Staring at the asylum floor

 

It was grimy and grey

Made of old cracking clay

And glass was scattered about

 

Pools of blood stood dry

But I knew not why

They seemed to have come from me

 

All I remembered 

From last night's tremors

Is the need to escape this place

 

 

I looked to the door

It stood unlocked

Hanging on its hinges, ajar

 

I creeped and I crawled 

Down through the hall

That's when I came to a guard 

 

There on the ground

A knife, I found

My fingers curled around it in glee

 

I stabbed and I stabbed

My mind gone mad

Until the guard's soul was freed

 

To a door I came

The key I had claimed 

From the guard I had left to die

 

The hinges swung open 

To a view of the ocean 

And the smell of sweet and salt combined

 

My stomach gurgled in pain

Was it guilt 'cause I maimed?

Was I hungry or just going insane?

 

I resorted to glee

And I ran to the sea

Jumping into the water with joy

 

It was warm, It was wet

And I'll never forget

The thinkness of the water around me

 

That's when it happened 

The sea became crimson 

And the pain in my stomach increased

 

The scene faded away

Like a long ending day

And suddenly I was indoors

 

I sat still as a rock

Like my soul had bee locked

And soon fell to sleep on the floor

 

 

There I sat 

On a torn murky mat

Staring at the asylum floor

 

It was grimy and grey

Made of old cracking clay

And glass was scattered about

 

Pools of blood stood dry

But I knew not why

They seemed to have come from me

 

All I remembered 

From last night's tremors 

Is the need to escape this place
