A Lunatic


A lunatic always laughs
Seldom cries
A lunatic always walks towards
Seldom walks backwards
A lunatic always dreams
Seldom us
A lunatic always happy
Seldom us
A lunatic always calm
When eats
Seldom us
A lunatic sleeps well
Seldom us
A lunatic loves nature
Seldom us
A lunatic is normal always
Seldom us

    Hi Jk I love this write... It speaks volumes to me..The layout of your words hold a certain significance also. As I feel a person suffering inside would keep mulling things over, which is how the patter suggests.
    I like how you complete with seldom us... As we all sometimes are lost (I feel) then behave a tad irrational or off the cuff..my favourite write of yours so far.
    It seems in this write that the lunatic has the easier existence (sleeping well and enjoying nature (sounds like me)
    Great! !

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
