Out of mind,
I hide the feelings,
Scared of where they could take me,
Offered care and kindness.
Trying to keep the pain out of my mind.
To keep in the happiness,
A game of pretend,
To ignore my mind and emotions.
The pain that comes with darkness.
The shining light, that echoes in the darkness.
The mind, clouded with worry, sadness and uncertainty.
Trying to push all feelings out of mind.
Trying to save myself from my demons.
An attempt to hold strong against the dark.
To keep the leeches at bay.
To wipe my mind,
To save the body.
Out of mind is the answer,
Or it must be,
The solution I face,
Only way past it.
Out of mind.
To cope, to save me.
