The Madness

When you give up the fight
one starts to sink into the depths 
of a sickly-sweet world
of the madness that lies dark and dormant,
into the deadly grip of the madness deep inside you 

When you surrender every last drop of sanity
to the insane conscious in the back of your mind 
the worlds of fear and pain become meaningless to the soul,
they become numb and distant, made into nothingness
and yet they are the ruins that remain standing

When you submit to the demon of insanity
one is consumed by the unpredictable inconstant,
suffers the loss of the ever constant
and withdraws into a lost and unknown world
where reality in a distant memory and isolation is society

When the madness dominates your life
all self control and restraint are abandoned 
because fear is no longer there to guide them
one becomes reckless and unreasonable 
the reality that was once in control, simply vanishes 
and arrives at a place where the real becomes unreal
The place where madness ensconces your mind

Where the madness is deep inside your mind
there its eternally lurking in the depths of one’s subconscious, 
the madness constantly stirs up the nightmares of hell
and it forever says in its restless trance, watching and waiting,
the madness sits inside us quietly, till one slips into its baneful grasp

    Perhaps so, but inside of us is the strength to over come, to befriend our fiercest demon and adversary, and find the compassion we need for ourselves, it all begins with self love, blessings to you xxx
