This is another of the poems I wrote in the hospital this summer, as you can see a somewhat scattered piece.

THIS TIME

I get so confused its frightening
Sometimes I don't get it at all
The lights are on but I still can't find the door
I try so hard, but it ain't enough
I think I might make it this time
If I could just leave this room

Sometimes I don't recognise anyone
And don't understand what they say
And the softest whisper sounds like a shout
Even my shrink can't explain it to me
I think its time to embrace the sorrow
I think its time I reaped what I've sown
I think I might make it this time
If I could just find the way out

Like the taste of wine
It's hard to define
Just why I think I ain't real
Why I slept with that man
Why I cut open my own hand
I just needed something to feel

I dance with ghosts and angels I can't see
I walk through the night and hide all day
And I'm sure someone somewhere has the key
But who or where I can't say
So I'll keep telling myself
That there's no place like home
And try hard to believe it this time
Try to chase away the doubt
Wish I could find the way out

A squeeze, a and a shoulder...sending them to you.

Of sound, and speech let all lift the hearer!
