This undiscovered room feels so familiar.
It feels a lot like being trapped inside your brain.
And it's dark.
And I can't see where I'm going.
And there isn't any space for me to avoid anything.
I might bump in on my disturbing thoughts.
Or my insecurities, my doubts, my biggest fears.
Or even worse, I might see you.
It's dark but I can see you.
You're an old demon waiting to devour what's left of me.
"Why are you still here?" Demons, I've heard, live under our beds only when we're little and unaware of the world.
I was unaware of the demons that I'd keep when I grow up.
"You -will- try to escape your mind", he said to me.
"Take me with you and I'll reward you."
Lies, lies, lies are the voices I hear when I'm alone.
One day, I swear,
when I'm sick of this curse,
I will forcefully open up my brain with my bare hands.
I'll release those thoughts like bats flying away from light.
Hope it's not too late then.
I will escape. I'll try to break all the glasses until my hands turn red.
And crawl out of my brain alive.
Only to find out, you would follow me wherever I go.
And then I woke up.
It was a nightmare.
You weren't under my bed, just as I predicted.
"I'm still here." a whisper.
