Deliver my sanity

Be not a constant reminder of such a withered existence, State of mind being part of the fear, fear of a losing race. Flying past the places that were lost before they were found, Finding warmth from the blood, flowing without a sound. Speak that I cannot hear, don’t escape me no matter what u want, Yearning for eternity the only thing I have not got. Deliver me a way to bring Balance back this way it comes, Towards the place where the pinnacle was sliced, Cut the cord to the one thing left beating in this body, A corpse, delivered unto me, disgraced from all who looks upon thee. Pooling from corner to corner, seeping through the cracks, Creases made to conceal and make the weary forget time, Pendulum that stops for no one, hold, feel, touch, caress, Trace a pattern in the sand, so a way may be found, Hide not from your hero, gasping for breath your only speech, Tell me not, the task I ask, cannot be done, Finish what you promised and save me, save the balance. Bring the balance back to me, save us from our sanity. This is copyrighted material. All rights are reserved. Reprints must be requested in writing to the original author. © Alisha Groves

Fanciful surrealistic descriptiveness here. It's almost like a Salvador Dali canvas with words.

Felt a little Lovecraft vibe from it. Always a theme of sanity slippage. You hit the voice of an unstable mind well. The sense of panic hoping to find the exit. Enjoyed your writing!
