Sanity - Poem by julie kops

sanity, you are so fragile
as the hummingbirds wing
a fine line do I walk
strange now the words I sing

Where am I in this enigmatic world
for I am no longer sure
That what i see before me
is something i can endure

How sweet the chaos in my mind
as it carries me far from here
each brick added with care
for the loss of my soul draws near.

Dont look behind these eyes my friend
there is nothing here to see
the one you seek is gone
this is no longer me

No stars will sparkle here again
for i have hidden them inside
every wall grows stronger today
every lock again retried

My confusion is a whirlpool
that holds my spirit fast
and I fear lest it wash away my soul
before its time is passed.

sadness it doth rend my very mind
until I scream for my rescue
but death does not easily release
when it feels its time is due

Even now I find I m longing
for the peace that his darkness shares
yet I will fight this battle on
for as long as my soul dares
