"A thin layer of trust had formed in my mind, like a scab."

"I preferred albums to the more modern eight tracks. Albums came with sleeves which reminded me of clean underwear."
-Augusten Burroughs

Spiderwebs twinkle in the sunlight reflects off the windows never shining in just on the brickwalls. Spiderwebs make wicked poetry topics but so do brickwalls since this is the view I get of these hospital windows. That and the grey sun shines in my room. Standing on my mattress I can see the parking lot full of cars at least they can go home. The cars on the street constantly zooming past these buildings that are visibly invisible. Like me.

Wrote this while I was in a mental hospital. It sucked. I felt so trapped. :(
