Hearing voices in my head
They tell me to do what they say
No control over what i do
They invade and down i go
No control over what i say
They are constantly here
Watching for my every move
Making sure i stay in line
I look in the mirror
They show me what to see
What they want me to know
Hide the truth
Release the pain

...i close my eyes in order to see...

Kewl Poem
Hey, I think your poem is cool and anymore?

The repetition really didn't do it for me. I think it would have been better without it. Also, I think the tone needs changing - either it needs to be more emotional or more detached, instead of how it is at the moment, sitting on the fence between the two. A nice idea though. It's good to write about the voices in your head once in a while because it makes people think you're mad :) hehe

I agree with False Dawn; I think the tone needs some primping in order to truly connect the emotions in the poem with the reader. Maybe use more combative language.
