Insanity - Poem by Mandy Author2

I know i live in my own little fairytale world.
I know i tend to zone out a lot.
I know I'm not the least bit normal.
But you have to understand.
You cant take it from me.
It's the only thing keeping me from insanity.
You have to understand.

I know i don't always do what I'm supposed to.
If i did i wouldn't be me.
I know i read too much.
It's helping me keep my sanity.
I know i care too much.
Is that really a bad thing?
But you have to understand.
You cant take it from me.
It's the only thing keeping me from insanity.
You have to understand.

I'm so scared and no one knows it.
I'm so scared but i don't show it.
I cant handle making myself that vulnerable.
I'm convinced that if I'm completely honest
With anyone that i will get hurt.
So i hide my fears from the world.
But you have to understand.
You cant take it from me.
It's the only thing keeping me from insanity.
You have to understand.

I stay up most of the night.
Trying to distract myself
From the insanity i live in
With a good book or a radio.
It doesn't work.
The insanity scares me.
It keeps me up at night.
I'm so scared it will get me.
But you have to understand
You can't take it from me.
It's the only thing keeping me from insanity.
You have to understand.

I get lonely in my fairytale world.
You cant leave my alone very long.
You have to help me.
Everyone knows I need a little extra help.
For me please have a little more patience, have a little more time, be a little more careful.
I know it's hard.
But you have to understand.
You can't take it from me.
It's the only thing keeping me from insanity.
You have to understand.

This insanity, it's hereditary.
That is scary.
This nightmarish insanity will get me if I'm not strong enough.
But being strong may not help me escape this hereditary, scary, nightmarish insanity.
But my strength is all i have.
But you have to understand.
You can't take it from me.
It's the only thing keeping me from insanity.
You have to understand.
