Beginning of Hells Illusion

I wanted to share this piece with everyone, i was given it by a person in the mid 80’s i once knew who no longer walks this earth.
To understand where it comes from, you have to try and put yourself in her place.
Tammy was a young lady with many problems, broken family, no direction in life, incarcerated in an institution and fed Psych medication 3 times a day.
She would do damage to herself with any form of sharp object she could find to not gain attention but to rid the demons from her mind..
Here is her story in her own words.

Here i sit all alone,
My mind slowly entering the Twilight Zone.
It’s filled with horrors and tortures and hell,
It’s alright Tammy, you’re still in your cell.
But it’sgoing to be my home for quite a while,
Check out the Psych, going thru my file.
The devils are back, they punch my face,
Get out, get out, i need my space.
My mind is intangible and cannot be seen,
Only the fragments of my tormented mind and where it may have been.
I’m lost and alone on my isolated isle,
She’s talking, i’m not listening, still going thru my file.
I’s OK Doc, i say, I’m physically well,
My body is complete, but my mind is in hell.
She thinks i’m handling isolation OK,
Dear god, is there nothing left to say.
Come on Tammy, back in your cell,
Entering once again the tortures of hell.
The toilet is running and is driving me mad,
Oh you poor thing, how sarcastically sad.
I am not hungry, the pain is not there,
I want to go to paradise, can you please take me there.
Please listen & watch, can’t society see,
I’m a victim to the system, thats what you made me.
My mind is separate, yes, i’m going home,
Maybe it’s just another corner to the Twilight Zone.
