A S Y L U M

welcome to the asylum
medicated monstrosity
pain in chains
we wander the halls
numbed
remembering
the way we used to be
we are the damned
with glass eyes
and steel hearts
we do not see
the peeling walls
the barred windows
the locked doors
we have forgotten them
the walls & the bars & the doors
they do not hold us here
we are prisoners to our weakness
we are condemned by our own disease
shuffle
in socks
with treads on the bottom
among the rubble
that was our lives
here i can
remember you
and it can't
kill me
