Asylum

Howls of the unwanted and forgotten,
echo in the walls
crying is all that roam the halls.

Time cannot fade the pain,
let the fall of bare night cover their pleads too
signed death warrants.

bricks touched with sunlight remain cold.
Electro Shock Waves, Melon Ballers, and Ice pick Lobotomies
systematic cruelty.

sadistic medical practice.
More victim than patient
closed door institution; ever so busy
hollow are their footsteps

Scratched wrists, strap scars, straight jackets
many scribbled truth and pain in the wall
strung out, left to sway in the corner
with their own devices
