Silence is what I crave.
Silence from the Voices I hear.
The Voices talk too much.
The Voices tell me what to do.
Sometimes I listen,
Sometimes I ignore.
Mostly I give in.

Insanity comes easy,
Sanity is hard.
Hard to find,
Hard to hold on to.
Insanity gives me power.
Sanity drains me.
I love insanity.

The Voices never stop.
They are always there.
GIving suggestions,
Commanding my actions,
Deceving my senses,
Placing me into a different world.
The Voices I hate.

Pain comes when i try to shut Them out.
Pain so intense that i almost kill.
So the Voices stay.
Makeing me insane
More and more. . .
Day by day. . .
Death will silence the Voices.

i like the feelings that in sanity brings on occation, unfortunately most of those feelings leave me feeling a bit psychotic so i try and keep my self sane, sometimes it works other times not.

We all have to be a little bit crazy now and then. That's why we're poets! Some, like Toerag, Balladeer, LngJhnAg are a little closer to the edge than we'd like, but we put up with them anyway!
