• Black is the night
    Still sleep i must fight
    Hold them off til the mornings early light
    Forever i shall fight
    This has no end in sight
    So upon the cage's walls I write
    Spilling forth my thoughts in spite
    In fury i lay at whim to their might
    Tasting the lashes fiery bite
    Night after night
    I lay awake in fright
    Masking every motion to stay quiet
    Yet unable to hide from it
    It's frightening eyes scy it
    My fear must be its diet
    Now my mind is cracked with thoughts a riot
    No money can buy it
    No cover can hide it
    The demons of my sight
    Open or closed, they remain to lie to it
    My mind as they see fit.
