Legally Insane...poem


Please don’t leave me here i begged

While the voices screamed loud in my head


The door slammed leaving me alone,

The torment of my mind, like a dog with a bone


The padded walls of my cell

Ringing loud with my angry yell


Insane i was declared to be

But deep down i knew there was nothing wrong with me


A demon has possessed my mind

Leaving all my good and sense behind


Blood now stains my soul and hands

A trail of murder across the lands


A killing spree committed in my name

Yet i am faultless, not to blame


Laughing as the voices clamor

My pleas drooling off into a broken stammer


Faces of the dead haunt me at night

Their horror twisted visage, a comforting sight


There is now only darkness

The black of the cell filling with deep menace


Shaking, backing into a corner

As the darkness swells and comes to together


With no more souls to reap

The demon won’t let me sleep


Torturing me both night and day

I have now become its only prey.


There is no god for one such as I

My only hope is, to wait to die.

Where did that come from. It was deep and dark but you must always know that God is with you wherever you go. Nice work.

God bless you, Troy C.

I found your dark side interesting, we all have one. I write often of mine in many of my writes. This was anguish and the demon inside a constant companion. We try as we move through life to keep them at bay, however they tend to surface from time to time and we have to pen them.

thank you saddlerider1, writing this, it was almost like it wrote itself ( a marvel when that happens) Letting my dark side out to roam across a page is very freeing for me, although I have had some uncertain results in the past :)

Thank you so much for stopping by and i am thrilled you liked it

I do have to admit that I love playing in the darker side of verse, fear is something we all know on some level so its very relatable no matter who we are

I am glad that you found this earlier poem of mine, it was good to revisit it through fresh eyes, thank you
