Pinned down like a butterfly,
As reality plays it mind games

Trapped inside my flesh Screaming inside my head,

Fighting in my hallucination, Falling into a different realm Pinned down like a butterfly,

As reality plays it's mind games Feeling like its the end,

But then it starts all over again,

I am scared,my invisible shackles hurt me

My invisible captor torments me,

Can everyone around me not see that I am suffering?

Do they ignore my screams,my fight.my hallucination?

Can they not pull me out of this realm?

And just before I give up its all over.

It's times like these that I'm glad I can never quite recall my dreams-- if I go by the oddness that plays in my mind during the day, I don't even want to begin to think about what's happening when there's free-for-all up there.. ;S Anyway; you captured a real desperate and trapped sense in this piece, and I liked the line "My invisible captor torments me". The scene seemed so realistic, and the words "screams", "fight" and so on created a tense and high-charged atmosphere. The last line almost sort of trailed off, like- even though it's over, you can't not sleep; so it'll happen again *ominous music* Good job, keep writing! :)

Wow this is pure greatness. I love everything about it from start to finish. It reminds me of those people that always act strong but are hurting on the inside. ~Poetic

I read your poem on home page & Thoth it was great so I decided to have a peek into your homepage and like this one to the imagery in your poems are brilliant there is not a thing in them one can fault , but if I could just add that if you changed your format of your writings your poems would stand out much more my format was terrible until I figured out with the help of a few nice bookie writers how to change it I hope you you don't mind my mentioning of this .
All the best : Ina .

This is very well written. Has so much meaning and it is

Separate the lines a little.. Kudos to you!
