Traits Of A Mad Man

Traits Of A Mad Man In the eyes of a mad man he can see His own self held in captivity The mind of a mad man is controlled By his own demons he refuses to let go He can feel the evil pumping through his veins And the voice within ceases not to remind him He's forever insain The fear of a mad man is what keeps him alive Scared to death of that last breath. For even he too eventuality must die

    I wonder what inspired this poem. It's interesting. I was a little surprised to read that the mad man fears death.

    Hello Larry, A very interesting poem here indeed. You've touched on key words central to the mad man theme: eyes, mind, evil, voice within, fear and fright!! Enjoyed this one. Best!! Gary

    Interesting poem, Larry. But you certainly do not fit the description of the person in the poem. Mad men do not leave positive notes on other poets' offerings. I will read on for more clues.

    Good poem Larry. Makes me wonder about the difference between people who refuse to let go of their demons and people whose demons refuse to let go of them.
