View from inside

Let me out
Abandon me
Don't call me
My existence a malevolent tumor
My hope remains
An insensitive rumor
My heart is long since broken
I’ve given up hope
My soul is a token
Of the wars over my being
For I’d rather be gone
But they insist upon seeing
If this drug or that
Can remind me of why
I should ever wish to stay
But drugs cannot
Nor can the shocks
The icepick won’t help
I will still have these thoughts
Because they are the real me
And the people outside
Long for me to lie
Let me die
Let me die
Say I am sorry
To those who will cry
I long to be so far away
My mind is my comfort
And my flesh betrays
All I am
All I am
all I am
