Have you ever gone insane

Have you ever gone Insane? I remember the space and time Where my mind liquefied in-between chains of reality That I had originally planted within myself The only problem was that it wasn't watered Nor ..nourished It grew in the shaded and jaded filtered pictures of the Sun's dying rays that I'd labled: "I've gone insane" Aside from the screams and voices, bellowing against me Like the piercing winds that I mistook for comfort Without permission, Grabbed hold and sunk their bloody claws, Into ol' sunken me The blood representing, "My apologies" I've gone insane. AND FOR SOMEBODY AS KIND AND SO HUMBLE AS I I'd gone insane Uncontrollable body and mind I couldn't let the darkness win Not this nor, next time.. So I raged A war inside of me so painfully scorned and seared with tears of the demons I've silenced in order to feel Sane. I don't think it would've mattered if I'd caught that rare bounty Before it manifested, Bounty-less For I'm not a mere coin in a sunken treasure, I am the sunken treasure chest 3/3/18

I have gone insane many time. Pack-up and left places. Danced with the Winter storms and drank to the sea. Good to know some madness. I enjoyed the ride in your words dear Angela.
