PAIN IN THE BRAIN

the pain in the brain
its still there
the darkness, madness
nothing makes sense
jumbled thoughts, nerves
crying
i wear masks to cover the shame
the guilt the pain
the pain in the brain
its still there
go away but it stays
i want to scream throw things at
maddening faces
spit running down my face
the screaming in my ears
i run to hide but they find me
no place to hide
the pain in the brain
it’s still there
