A Haunted Mind in a Haunted House
I stare into the eyes of my enemy,
I’m a little bit scared, I admit,
It looks strangely familiar,
But I can’t place a finger on it.
I take a step back and see a thin wall,
Where a silvery message is engraved,
It says for some help I must call,
But there is no one around who can hear.
My thoughts are racing, my mind is blurred,
I see a light and another note,
Try and think of a way out of this mess,
A challenge, a quest, is what’s wrote.
My heart is pounding as I run for the door,
And my breath is tangled and caught.
I need more air, I need to think,
But my mind is sad and distraught.
I take a deep breath, and reach in front of me,
There’s nothing there, just space.
I’m doomed I think, of a life in hell.
Unless I think of a way out, but I must race.
There’s a stone on the floor, and I pick it up,
I step forward again and write.
I’m not scared I will not cry.
I will open my eyes and fight.
I sense my heart stop and my mind go blank,
I crawl on the floor and cower like a mouse,
I’ve suddenly realised I’ve let myself be,
A haunted mind in a haunted house.
