in my head

Fucked up in my head

I see what I dont want to

I cant see what I want to

I want what I dont want to

I dont want what I want to

I speak what I dont want to hear

I hear what I dont want to think

I think what I dont want to dream

I dream nothing

The vacuum the shallow pit it looks

which feels deep


the walls farther sometimes

and chasing them

choking close at times

The greed growing

the desires waning

the fear impregnating

the mind

Just be strong until you can until I can breath not.

I like the way you use repetition in your piece as a poetic element. It's been a while since you posted.
So, your poem is a cry out for lack of control. There's this understanding of what needs to be done that contradicts what is actually occurring. The mind misdirects the body. The want misdirects the need. Fear certainly does impregnate...that's a great term. The final line is a change to second person, addressing the reader (or somebody). I'm not sure what it means.
