A challenge by AllyDee. The challenge was to pick no more than 4 songs, and write a poem with similar lyrics to it. My two songs are “Mad World”, originally by Tears for Fears, also done by Gary Jules and “Time After Time” by Cyndi Lauper (Eva Cassidy also has a version). If you actually pay attention, it really does make sense. This is my poem:

Mad, mad
All around me, familiar faces
Familiar places, familiar traces,
I don't find it funny,
I find it rather sad
That this is a mad world
Mad, mad.
The dreams in which I'm dying
Are the best I've ever had
I don't find it funny,
I find it rather sad
That this is a mad world
Mad, mad.
And if you're lost,
Don't look behind
Cause you won't find me
Time after time
If you fall, I won't catch you
You'll never find me
Time after time
And after your pictures fade
And darkness has turned gray
I'm watching through a window,
I don't care if you're okay,
Time after time.
