I Think I Need an Exorcism
Brandxxx

I screamed into the house
 1
and threw my blanket aside
 2
with unconsciously stylized movements
 3
they say I’m crazy
 4
sometimes
 5
when I’m crying
 6
smiling though
 7
always lying...
 8
coming through an age we all think we're dying
 9
pictures are falling
 10
down off the wall
 11
and all and all and all and all
 12
is worth nothing at all
 13
I laugh and laugh until I hear the phone call
 14
because
 15
its funny when I repeat the obvious
 16
a mantra of the mundane
 17
a central dissension in the room
 18
as my mind is crawling across the walls
 19
Linda Blair is screaming "fuck me fuck me fuck me"
 20
and it doesn’t sound to bad
 21
it makes people spit
 22
when its my eyes that are staring down sanity
 23
and they say I’m crazy
 24
sometimes
 25
I think I need an exorcism.

L21--"too"
L23--"it's". There's something wrong with the grammar on this line, but I can't quite put my finger on it. Fantastical. Alomost, very nearly better than KFC. (I love popcorn chicken)
