There's a Voice in My Head

Written by Sophie Jayne Whitrick


There’s weeds in my head

they wish me, give me worth, to be dead

pull tight ‘round my throat

weighing me down, I try to float.


The light is my marker.

But they’re strong, the blanket shrouds

Me darker


We’ve been living together so long

I’m scared the weed and I have

Become one.
