(2/16/50 / Las Vegas, Nevada - When there was only one saloon in town!)

(1.4) Madness Waits for Me


Somewhere, Madness waits for me...
I know, for I can see it in my dreams.
It's not a pleasant thing to see,
But then sanity is never what it seems...

There are Things that hide and lay in wait...
I know, for I can hold their presence back,
But they won't really show until it's too late
And I am overwhelmed by their attack...

    It's difficult to see what is coming at times, but we must try our best to stay in tune body and mind. Sometimes we quickly enter a dark place and have a difficult time getting back to the light, but we must always do our best to keep ahead of these instant attacks. Excellent poem--Melvina-- (Report) Reply

But the tear that now burns on my cheek may impart
