This poem is based off of Edgar Allan Poe's The Tell-Tale Heart. Therefore I have written the actual poem part but the storyline is in fact Poe's.

I'm not insane

Hear me out understand my claim

Let me tell you the story of myself and the old man

The old man with the vulture eye

 And about the day we said goodbye


I love the old man don't get me wrong

But, it is because of that villainous eye of his that we had to depart

Now all that is left is the beat of his heart


It took eight nights

Eight long, long, nights

But the deed was done 

The old man was no longer one


Someone from the surrounding must have heard his screams

Because at four o'clock they appeared

But so did the sound of the old man's heart beating

I'm not insane.
