It's Madness

It's madness that's what it is

To keep going around in circles

 never coming to an end

Chasing after invisible dreams

Falling into nightmares it always seems

So easy to fall asleep and dream

 of madness secretly

Oh if only I could escape for one day

Sanity may return

Madness is forever near

It doesn't let me forget who is

 running the show

I scream inside my head for

 this madness to


It only laughs at me and keeps

 up its charade

Teasing and taunting me till

 I'm in the grave

Even there I will not escape for

 Madness will

follow me into eternity

I'm safe no where

ek ellis, you say "[Madness] doesn't let me forget who is running the show" ??

Nonsense!! ... But in poetic expression, it is really quite profound – write on!

I wish you all the best – including that Peace that will calm any tempest that besets your way.

An enjoyable and enlightened poem,knowing the edge of reason and writing it down can be better than any therapy or pill...

Understood words are better than never told words. Thanks for sharing. And I believe I know madness as you foretell.
