Insanity Invades Like a Tumor


Winter catches my long, ravishing hair

Raven-black, cascading freely down my back

Twisting curls into tight, painful knots

Gripping my head, squeezing my skull

As autumn dissipates into the atmosphere

Snow aggravates the warmth in my bones

Solitude interrupts noises

Whirling and swishing

Inside my fragile brain

Darkness dancing, laughing

Invading everywhere

Tormenting my head again

Like a cat’s midnight meow

And a snake’s piercing hiss

In the middle of the night

Stirring the purity of my dreams

Out the window I gaze, the devil’s stare

Gone is the sweet silence

A shrill, an ear-piercing high pitch

The top of my lungs do I scream, I scream, I scream

Flirting with madness

It is cold here, wet and hard like ice

My pale skin shivers

Without you here I cannot bare

I fear, I fear insanity is near

Hurry, hurry you must return home…to me

So I can fall into your arms

Kiss me until the chaos leaves

Tease me. Enchant me. Take me.

Love me endless, love me crazy

Until eternity, or until I die

Whichever comes first.
