Mind Games by Tammy Bartholomew

Mind games

Played so well

Consuming lives

Others in hell

Our minds crazy

Waiting the next move

Out playing the other

What will they do

By the phone

A call or text

Read the unknown

What will happen next

Take others feelings

Make them our own

Become someone else

Sitting all alone

Surrounded by people

We think we knew

Willing to trust

Bare our sole to

Family and friends

Choosing a side

Betrayal and trust

To someone who’s lied


Minds pounding

Blood pressure rising

Everything mounting

A drug

We need to survive

Asking ourselves

Will I still be alive

Much are we fed

That’s not true

Might have been the creator

Between me and you

Eating thoughts

In our head

If not careful

Ending up dead
