Oh no, you can’t come out.
Go back inside and wait.
You’ll make me say or do
something, I’m gonna hate.
Please don’t come out now
when people are here.
You normally show in private
when there’s no one near.
Don’t put me thru this torment.
Get back inside I say!
I will talk to you later,
when these people go away.
Oh God, your just not listening.
now I will have to run.
All the startled faces,
asking questions, making fun.
I’m ashamed and bloody angry,
they’ll never understand
that once you’ve made your mind up,
I’m at your command.
Alone now, do your worst,
bang my head against the wall.
Digging nails in, pulling hair,
throwing things – do it all!
Soon you will return
to your safe, dark hiding place.
I’ll pick up all the pieces
and hide from the disgrace.

Madness can take you over when you don’t want it to and you have to deal with the consquences of that later
