On the edge of Insanity

No sleep in countless days

awareness addles the forlorn mind

repeating horrific moments and I pray

to the point I don’t believe they’re mine.

To be at peace with a memory so bright,

I must become a lurid monster..

I shall never ever see a light

only shadows in the dark that maunder.

My Insanity! My Soul! My Master!

Leave me be in selfish peace!

My heart can beat no faster

than the echoed breath in silent ease.

My lost forgotten soul stands

there on the edge of insanity at last!

My mind shall flow into unknown lands

as the hands of dawn touch the meadow of my past.
