Like Ophelia
Your mind became so
Unbalanced and you

Drowned, but there the stark
Similarity
Ended; you could have

Been well again, your
Broken mind mended,
Had they given you

The right prescribed drugs
And had you seen by
A psychiatrist

And not locked away
In some room for weeks
On end with other

Broken people in
The deep black sea
Of insanity.

They ought to have kept
An eye on you, saved
You from yourself, watched

You as you wandered
In the grounds that day,
Have heard your cries, as

You were drowning, take
Flight like dark angry
Birds in the blue sky.
