Asylum of the Damned Poem

Asylum of the Damned

Asylum of the Damned

Inhabited by psychos

In padded rooms they’re crammed

For reasons no one knows


Decrepit walls of grime

Protect the world outside

Inmates pass the time

In their own minds they reside


Eerie creaks from metal beds

Resonate through the halls

Screaming voices in their heads

Ignoring demon’s calls


Insanity a state of mind

Brought on by lifelong stresses

Only made worse by the confined

Their illness just progresses


Walls pitch black and burned

From a past horrendous fire

Condemned souls here returned

Roaming their eternal pyre

      Even though I actually do not understand poetry, somehow your poem got inside me and made me agree with it. I voted it up, interesting and awesome.
