Vacation to Schizophrenia

A whole house aired with dust
and dark twilight at every hour,
there was a mountain— tall as rust
that made me feel a coward.

There were cans and cans on
tiled floor? More dust and dirt 
on towels. As a child, I clutched my teddy
bear, while inside I lost
some vowels.

    Mental illness, its on slaught, having to live cared for by someone who is not stable, becoming unglued oneself is a multifaceted "gift" I too wrote of madness, Van Gogh's madness but I know because my voyage has been so near the shoals, the rapture of the deep. Congrad's and LIght & Love
