    Madness

    Heaved inside out,
    Hauled upside down,
    My dizzy world,
    Spins me round,
    Did you know madness
    Makes no sound?

    Not one that’s heard,
    By a sane one’s ear,
    They don’t understand,
    The reality here,

    A cocophony of noises,
    voices,and
    tears,
    A manifestation,
    Of all your fears,

    Madness
    is my state of mind,
    Sadness
    is what I always find,
    I have to break,
    These chains that bind,
    Then
    my sanity,
    I might find.

    The last stanza is VERY powerful... great write!

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

    Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
