they tell me to take my clozaril.
it’ll make the voices go away, they say.

i tell them no, no, no.
i tell them no.
i scream at them no. i fight them no.
i squirm and bite them.


for the only reason i live
is to hear your voice inside my head
and i shall fight them till the end
restraints and all
before i let them take you from me again.
