um...yea

My sanity is dead

I've been betrayed by my own head

Get a grip?

Shit, show me how

I'll never figure this mess out now

I've gone insane

I'm out of my brain

I'm hanging by a wire

My heart and my mind are mad at each other

And lighting up a funeral pyre

Normal is overrated

And strange is understated

My mind, I could not hold it

I didn't lose it

The harpies stole it

Um...

Whoops I'm sorry

I lost myself...

What's going on again

Why even try to keep this straight

Who's smarter?

Mice?

Or men

My own fictional terrorist,

Put a plane into my brain

Isn't it strange that brain rhymes with insane?

Switch the "a" and "i" and you get Brian

He's one of those "normal" guys

These kinds of thing don't bug him

He never wonders why

Screw you Brian I hate you

Not really, but you don't care

"normal" people are strange to me,

I can't help but stop and stare

It's 4:00am. I'm half ass dead

I'm still awake...I think

Off my rocker?

Shit I broke it

Writing poetry with clear ink

Stick

Brick

Thick

Flick

Truck

Luck

Buck

Chuck

Ray

Day

Hey

SAY!

We'll die anyway

So what's the use in praying?

Oops, I'm off on my own again

I'm sorry what were you saying?

This is really good, I lost it a bit in the middle but it sounds like you never had it anyway! lol.

I like it how even when you went of on rhyming words you managed to bring it right back to what you were trying to say.
Good work. x

It was easy and fun to follow your thoughts. Rambling, if done well can be entertaining. I know a Brian as well. Do I envy him?

I was having a good old time time when I wrote it. it's more of a pro insanity piece. making fun of the "normal" guy Brian. thp Brian is not one speasific person, he is a metaphore for anyone who thinks normality is possible, or is lost enough to srtive for it.

Your creation is absolutely awesome!! Very well written!! Keep up the stranglehold you have on your persona. This poem is one of the best I have read since I joined the site.
