Tumbling Into Chaos


Oh, the colors!

Glorious colors

until they become too much,

or I too little.

Then there’s no glory,

no vision,

but a sinking sense

of becoming overwhelmed.

There’s no form,

no substance

as I tumble down

into a world full of chaos.

No hint of sense,

no sense of meaning;

no good or bad,

no up or down.

My world has cracked,


my perception shattered

as I spin and fall -

a descent that leads

to madness.
