Insanity


Blood red rain inside my head,
Forms pools, where sanity has fled.
Screaming, putrid, moaning ghouls,
Play mindless games, with fatal rules.

Butchered priests, wave hand less arms,
While rotting whores display their charms.
Crippled jesters, grin and dance,
As long blind gamblers take a chance.

Politicians, fat with vice,
Give sin soaked Judges, bad advice.
Starving children, beg for aid,
From barbed wire cages, parents made.

I swim within my poisoned bile,
Condemned, and sentenced, without trial.
I scream for help, from all creation,
Knowing there is no salvation.

    Such a torture chamber of the mind. I can not fathom the endless black hole of this state of mind. However insane a view of the world it portrays, some of it hits the mark as in the case of the politicians. Graphically and tragically beautiful in verse. It leaves you cold and hopeless. It provides those of us with a better view a peek at the torment of mental illness and perhaps provides us with compassion to those suffering the illness. (Report) Reply
