Madness - Poem by James Vergara

In the town that I am from
They say that Im insane
They point and they laugh
So I play they're little game
I tell them they are right
I tell them I am mad
I tell them made up stories
About coutless adventures I've had
But sometime last week
I began to notice something strange
When I looked into they're faces
I knew that there was change
They're expressions became blank
They're voices became dull
And that's when I began to hear screams
As if someone was bashing skulls
But I payed them no mind
Even though I was loosing much sleep
And as I pretended to not notice
They're voices became deep
The shadows became darker
Whispers became loud
And could feel they're eyes starring
As I walked through every croud  
So I had to make it stop
I moved on with my life
I got married, had kids
And moved away with my wife
Some place far, a place they've never seen   
But even till this day
I could stil hear the screams
And when I try to think back
My memory gets a little hazy
I suppose they were right
I guess I am a little crazy
