I got locked away today,
In a dark and lonely place.
Locked inside a small white room,
Where all light is erased.

This is the place the unwanted are sent,
When they give up reality.
When nobody wants us around anymore,
They send us here, you see?

There is a guard outside my door,
I hear keys locked on his hips.
I scream and yell to be set free,
But his concentration never slips.

I'm trapped here in this room,
Im trapped in this small box.
There are bars on one small window,
And the door has many locks.

All of my hope is lost,
All my dreams are fading.
I hear a noise outside;
The nurses are invading.

I hear patients screaming,
As they open up the doors.
I hear them fight and struggle.
I hear bangs along the floors.

Then I hear a "tick"
And a twist of a small key.
I sit alone in terror,
They're coming after me!

Two ladies walk right in,
They try to hold me down.
That is when one lady,
Stuck a hand right up my gown.

She stuck a needle in my rear,
Suddenly I felt real jaded.
I tried to fight some more,
But my vision has just faded.

When I awoke the next day,
I was tied down to my bed.
flashbacks of my life came back,
They were eating at my head.

I begin to scream and yell,
As I see things that aren't real.
I begin to choke and gag,
As cold hands I start to feel.

My memories are choking me,
They're raping me inside.
I cannot run away from them,
I can't even try to hide.

I begin to cry and weep,
As I take one final breath.
I smile oh so slightly,
As I think I've reached my death.

Yesterday I got locked away,
In a dark and lonely place.
Locked within a small white room,
Where all light is erased.

This is the place the unwanted are sent,
When they try to stop the pain.
No one wants us anymore-
Because we're mentally insane...
This is one of my favorite poems I wrote :3 although it does bring back horrid memories...mental hospitals don't always help, but friendship kindness and love help - thats all a person needs...

And a special thanks to :iconwelcometomymadhouse: for coming up with the last line! :squee: :happybounce:

I was locked in a mental hospital for over a month a few times, once for severe depression, the other time for polluting, these places are not fun. :(

So am I. not for myself, but for the others I saw there. There was a girl, only five years old, who was suicidal. There was a seven year old boy who'd been molested and was scarred for life. There was an old woman so far gone she couldn't speak anymore. So rather than using kindness and understanding, they were locked up, away from contact. Of course, this was back in 2002, hospitals may have changed since then but I avoid them at all costs.

i know i don't know you and, you don't know me but... don't give up, i can relate to all the things you are going through. i know it's hard, i know that feeling of hitting the bottom more then you can remember and having to climb all the way up just to do simple things like getting out of bed or even eating. Iv'e been to mental hospitals and all that as well (they suck). 
    If you ever need someone to talk to, don't be afraid. You have more people that really, truly care then you might know. Lovely Shoujo (Heart for you) [V3]  
let your beautiful writing be your power and strength because it's truly amazing!!!

Being sent to a mental hospital myself I can relate to your poem.  It's so well-written, powerful, and breath-taking.  I honestly don't know what to type in this comment because I'm blown away!  Well I can think of one thing: don't stop writing! ;) I applaud thee for this outstanding poem! Epic clap

no problem! And you've already inspired me! (You are actually one of my favorite poets now right next to Edgar Allan Poe, Robert Frost, and Tim Burton xD) ^_^
Just keep writing however you feel/what's on your mind and be confident and love your own work because that's what makes an amazing poet! (at least from my opinion x3)

What a wonderful piece! I really sensed the atmosphere and emphasized with you all the way through. 

In general the flow is very nice as well, but I get disturbed by the second to last stanza, starting with "Yesterday". As you break the continuity of the story I would suggest breaking the structure as well. Maybe with a one line stanza in-between: "GASP! Sensing my beating heart""GASP! Waking to darkness again" or something...

Still great poetry though! I'm definitely gonna read more of your poems :)

I have been sectioned a few times so I know about mental institutions. You can feel isolated and confused. We are indeed the unwanted and forgotten. I think the care is improving but it is always a dreadful experience. I hope I don't spend my last days in such a place. Excellent work.

I'm glad that you got out of there :tighthug: I know that some people who work in those places find it offensive, but I understand that you're just writing about how a patient may feel. It's really sad how some of the patients' views are really that horrible~

Beautifully written, as always. ^-^

That's all I have to say. Read both. the second one until chapter 3. the first one all the way through.
Then, comeback and tell me you want to torture people in asylums.
