There’s no map of the mind
Or thoughts that are mines.
Don’t come so close
Or I’ll swallow you whole
My soul is a very dangerous
Story to be told.
Tales of places I’ve been
And people I’ve seen.
Some remains untold.
I’m smooth but rough,
Fragile but agile.
There’s a devil within,
Deep down in my skin
So even when I think I’m all alone,
I’m not on my own.
Maybe darkness is where I belong.
