Living Insane


In hopes that I find

The key back into my mind

So I can crawl back inside

And lock myself back up

I look to the sense of it all coming

These thoughts that are on their way

I peal away the skin on the potatoes

And see my heart grip itself

Never knowing just why

Why can't I grab ahold of cognitivity?

Sanity has left me many years ago

Almost 2 decades into my madness

I have seen the pig fly

__much too often

If I knew where to be free

To feel anything else

I would be lost in the fog of it all

Never knowing what was going on

Reality has been stripped from my consciousness

After I build my own nest

For me alone

I will hear the walls soak in tears

Witnessing my sadness for me

As I numb up and not even know

__how sad I am

I will rush thru the depths of escape

Never will I be a prisoner

To my own emotions
