The loud voices in her head

Slowly hushed sane thoughts

Inexorable, the loud voices in her head.

The loud voices in her head slowly hushed sane thoughts.

The prompt words this week made me think of the movie Black Swan. Natalie Portman did a phenomenal job portraying a ballerina slowly losing her mind. If you enjoy psychological thriller-horror movies and a stellar cast, I highly recommend this movie.

Have you seen the movie, Black Swan? Did you enjoy Natalie’s performance?

Do you know anyone who suffers from schizophrenia?
