today i slipped away again
discoved myself abruptly absent
void of any sense of sound existence
i picked through my pockets
dredged beneath my bed
positively ransacked my room
my car is left a display of extreme calamitous anarchy
i knew it...
i've lost my mind again
its the third time this week
and now its permanent
irreversable
i knew it...
what do they call this...literally losing your mind?
i know i must be a classic case of something
with only the little amount of cogent logic i had left
and now it's gone...gone
i am fortune's foe
do not look at me
i am hidious
a body disassociated from it's mind
a sailor without his compass
i must to lie down
it's getting so cold
whatever you do...stay away from the light
the end is near
for without my mind i am nothing
vacant and fruitless
leave me here to decay
feed me to the worms
oh wait...here it is
right on my dresser where i left it

I love the ending of this.  OH YES! Did you read my head?  This is me all over.  Maybe it's universal.  Do you think?

This is so very funny and so sadly true.  Thanks for the chuckle.

Happiness isn't something that happens to you, it's created from within you.  Joy is a state of mind.

smiling, I enjoyed this very much, considering I lost my mind in this particular forum too. Been looking for it all week and it still ain't there...but at least I found this.

Thanks for the smile.
