Taped onto my temples
Somehow would carry me towards
Friends from another realm, or
Black holes, Pulsars, Quasars or
Cepheid variables- I saw the world in my dreams from
A telescope on my balcony
I was only fourteen.
I pulled a map from underneath my bed every night
This world in the middle of nowhere
Is where I lived?
Bad grades, hated school,
No real people, or not real to me:
One, two, three, four
I couldn't stand it anymore,
Unless it was alone with Kyt
Walking home from school,
It wasn't really the real school I was walking home from
But from this other place.
Daddy got angry last night, and left,
I didn't care and
I didn't leave my room,
Mother ran away when she and daddy fought about me.
I threatened suicide,
High in the sky
I just don't care anymore,
So they called some strange doctor
They came to take me away.
I hid in the churchyard,
Red strobe lights flashing
"Give yourself up," I heard them say
I am surrounded
Trapped in my own thoughts,
Surrounded by police cars, mother and daddy and my own friends from outer space-
Are they the only saviors of my tainted soul?
