The Madman Sings

Falling fast blind rush of speed
dry earth nurtures not the seed
unclaimed discarded unbequeathed
the bounding heart belies the deed

Too late we hear the mouse trap's spring
garbled song the madman sings
as endless as his golden ring
frantic flutter broken wing

The smell the stench of rotting flesh
the milky sweet of baby's breath
juxtaposed and viewed against
unblinking eye of vacant death

    I like this way better, Danielle, the monorhyme broken up by having it in different stanzas. The imagery is great for a poem on madness. LUv,Andrea

    Excellent imagery here. And you add some extra punch by having a seperate monorhyme in each stanze. Well done.
