Insanity - Poem by Amber Jones

I walk though emotion
Feeling not my own, but others' too
My thoughts swim amongst commotion
As insanity awaits me

I dance in the flames
They flow with me, hissing in pain
And binding the other by chains
As insanity takes me

I whisper to the dark,
Monsters are waiting my call,
Begging to be free of their mark
As insanity fills me

I stroke the knife
They say there is no other way
So emotion takes my life
As insanity kills me
