The Light of Sanity

The Light of Sanity

A dim reflection of myself,
I’ve been alone since I was twelve;
A hurricane, my mind betwixt,
And the destruction shall enlist;

Ending be, my disposition?
Let it be, with malnutrition;
Save, for the darkness overcome
My thoughts, lost to the beast in tongue

‘Fore I speak of olden days, tame,
Madness ensues, and bores my name;
You there, you there, it calls to me;
Trembling, I let it wash o’er me.

Re-born, cold, wet, nude, stand alone,
Hollow room, my very own throne;
Me; enveloped in vanity;
Without the light of sanity

Yes, this paints a very descriptive picture of when the Light is absent, and the darkness overtakes the mind. Chilling.
