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
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.
