Assassins In My Head Poem by Stuart Doggett


She put assassins in my head,
I die to become me again,
She put assassins in my head,
Now I don’t know who I am.

Feel the wind inside of me,
Hear the drums in my ears,
Fuel the fire inside of me
To burn away all my fears.

Scents sounding so seductive,
Screaming at me to start,
Clean my head with chemicals
To stop me falling apart.

Eyes all watch from out of sight,
Staring beyond the sky,
I see them hide the truth from me
And all the others that walk by.

Creatures crawling over me
Picking at what they want,
Consuming what they can consume
And dropping what they can't.

Scared of monsters I could be,
Scared of monsters shaped like me,
Scared of all that monsters are scared of
Scared of being me.

She put assassins in my head,
She put assassins in my head,
