A place for peace

Voices bellow inside my ears.
They pull my limbs in different directions.
Be quiet, so I can think.
Left. Right. Wrong.
Morality isn't as simple as black and white.
Don't tell me how to act, like a puppet being pulled by strings.
I need escape.
Raise the volume. Crank up the stereo.
Because I don't want to hear the confusion that seeps through my cracks.
Windows are panelled in. Doors locked firmly.
A sign screams, "DO NOT DISTURB."
Leave me the hell alone.
My bedroom is my santuary.
A place for peace.
But even in my sleep, I'm haunted by your insanity.
You're a phantom that eats at my legs relentlessly.
Let me go. Please let me go.
Before I lose my mind.
And lose myself all together.

Love the picture of the roads with the signs. Reminds me a little of my life!
