my cheating psychosis — a hurtin’ poem

By dm gillis

lie to me, I have said to the voices
tell me I’m the only one
not that the silent nights come
only when you’ve slipped away
to waltz with other minds

tell me that I’m yours, alone
that in this broken down alleyway
when all night you have surrounded me
and synapsis and neurons
are planets in the sky
and we have clutched and made love
until only the sidewalks of dawn remain
tell me that there is no one else
that each of you speaks
only to me

I’ve stopped asking, do you hear?
because the you(s) in the room,
the visible(s), never can—
would catch fire if they did

  1. Hi, this is absolutely amazing :) I suffer from voices, and love what you have done with them here- “and synapsis and neurons
    are planets in the sky”- I think I’m going to try and write something similar!
