#5. A Journey into madness.
This descent to the abyss
Is not at all an unwelcome state
For my senses have never known peace such as this.
It is but a fitting fate
For a mind drugged for ages with unhappiness
It did not come suddenly in a flash
My journey was like the welcomed approach of sleepiness
It came gently, gently, none too harsh
An exciting spiral through a dark tunnel
Like a pretty twister forming an earth’s funnel
With no beginning and no end
No surprising turn or bend.
Just a free flying motion into eternity
And with the whispering winds
Blowing away at the wings
Of my unsung sanity.
I will stay here and close my eyes for a while
And journey on, courageously with a broken smile
Until I forget all my nightmares
And the crippling fear disappears.
