Lost In Insanity


Lost In Insanity

Come and imagine, if you will
Dancing flowers on a meadow hill
Children playing in harmony
Every aspect of a perfect reality

Yet not quite real are the butterflies
And usually not seen are purple skies
Puppy dogs and kittens are here
Cuddling together without a fear

A mist is creeping over this plain
People stare at the coming change
A figure walks from the mist in black
Something strange; a face he lacks

He walks past the children crying in fear
He chuckles softly, too loud to hear
The twisted tree sings a brand new song
Filled with terror of world long gone

Demons dance as the sky clouds over
And the purple fades to a dark red thunder
Screams of terror and of true pain
Horrible laughter like that of the insane

"Do not fear." A voices says to me
"This is just a taste of your reality.
I did not make this world like this
You chose to allow the devil's kiss."

A light shines through of happiness
But all I see through this evil mist
Is the terror and pain in my world
Blood and screams from boys and girls

I begin to see the pattern then
They were killed to the tune found within
I laugh at the knowledge I had found
They say only madmen make such sounds

Years have past since the man, so dark
Came within my mind and my heart
I guess I've gotten used to the misery
Yet sometimes; I wonder if something is wrong with me

You are, indeeed, a true poet. The people in my small town think I have talent; and this poem reminded me how insignifigant I really am. But the simplistic nature of this poem perfects it.

I liked this dark poem, we have inherited the world we have created. It has always been mans choice. Excellent piece.



Thank you so much for the read, I hope you come back later when I've posted some of my more recent poetry.

This is superb writing and this paragraph is simply masterful: ""Do not fear." A voices says to me "This is just a taste of your reality. I did not make this world like this You chose to allow the devil's kiss."—Bravo!!



Thanks, Dah. It was fun writing this... :)
