Borderline Madness - Poem by Maja Dezulovic

Borderline madness,
All-inclusive sadness
Coated in plastic joy
And chemical-infused gladness.

No longer do expressions and rants pass as ordinary, okay
Instead you’re shunned,
They turn away.

And what was once borderline
Turns full-blown
But nobody sees,
Nobody knows
Before the descent begins
Into a dark hole infused with specks of light.

But madness remains
So who’s to say you’re mad

We all have it –
An inclination towards insanity
That creeps in
And it is your choice
How much you’d like to tame it,
If at all.

Topic(s) of this poem: insanity, life, madness, mental illness

    Unexpectedly; but, that's what we see along the borders. Nice work. (Report) Reply
