Why

Why I
Stare in such surprise
Mirrored pond skies
Off the deep end
We both go

Friend or foe?

IF I HAD FAILED TO MENTION

If I had failed to mention
You have my full attention
Or just a mere obsession
Which prompted a depression?
Such a stirring stillness
To master mind of illness
Without a madness looming
Would not be as consuming
Dissension of my being
As sanity is fleeing
If I had failed to mention
You have my full attention

I KNOW MADNESS

 

 

                                                   

I know madness and she knows me
Longtime friend of the family
We’ve kept wonderful company
Genetics scorned by destiny

In our world of make believe
My companion loves to grieve
And in our laughter she keeps the tune
Of one who knows another’s moon

In abundance and every need
She is my left my right my creed
And in our world only she’ll
Know what is and isn’t real
