In the Mouth of Madness

Sheltering storms
Cover and comfort
The anxious thoughts
In a mind vexed
By deceiving shafts of truth
That pierce like spears
Flung from skillful hands,
Prodding and prompting
Admissions of denial,
A weak and torturous vein,
A lode assumed worth gold.
Taken out of context,
Misconstrued by vain illusion,
That self-exalting glory
Which calmly screams
In silent whispering.
Following a trail of crumbs
Left on sanity's wayward path,
Losing conscious thought
To desperate sterility
As crows of mental mischief
Blur the way.
Deeper and deeper still we go,
Seeking for the holy light
Of journeys trackless end;
Deliverance from madness
Is a backward plan
When seeking outwardly
What only lies within.
At last a chance misstep
Falling upside downside in.
The lips of chaos grinning wide,
As one more blinded soul
Is swallowed scarce alive.

Hmmm, I understand this more than I thought I would. I might have to read it again though just to cover the things i missed. But either than all that a great poem.

Hmm... I was rudely and suddenly removed from the Internet. A belated thanks to you both!
