Edge Of Insanity

Tortured eyes...I can't see
as my soul burns in a flame
of cold misery
darkness in a land
that you can't tame
who am I to blame
for not feeling the same

Look at my life through a mirror
I see a lonely face
so full of disgrace
but that's not me
in my reflection
he's grown so colder
filling his heart with hate
at the images
of what it use to be

Things are so much clearer
touch me..I feel no affection
as this pain gets nearer
to the edge of insanity

I use to be the man
able to stand tall
and make a stand
like the hero in the night
would'nt give in without a fight

Now these walls are closing in
coming down all around me
my mind can't break free
from this world full of madness
oh, should I live in shame
to take away my sadness

Like lightning
thunder rolls across the sky
my heart pumps blood
so full of anger
that runs through my veins
like a wild child of genocide
think it's too late
to save me from what's inside

I wake from this dream
as I try to scream
while I stood there to watch
it all fall before me
with a demon of suicide
just laugh and take my pride
here on the edge of insanity

Now strapped...
and tied to chains
my soul is trapped
like a animal in a cage
thought filled with rage
trying to escape reality
and all that's decieving
on the edge of insanity
(spiritwind-1991)

    Like lightning
    thunder rolls across the sky
    my heart pumps blood
    so full of anger
    that runs through my veins.
    Each of us at one time or other have peeped over the edge of insanity and we can see through your eyes what we felt but were unable to word. Your poems are made powerful and striking by your choice of words which pour out of your soul. Great! Angel
