On Edge
Author: tommyg


On edge
People around me
They are atomic bombs
They get close
Trying to hurt me

Their lies
come close
triggering secret rage
I can't talk
I shut my brain off

Their words in my mouth
suffocating peace
the only way out

In a safe place
where nothing hurts any more
thousand yard stare
I go into a world
Some place I know
Comfortable and alone

No one around me
No sounds
no people
no TV
no radio
no hate wars
to fight anymore
