Where Did Sanity Go

From While I Breath, I Hope. by David E. Bauguess



Falling ever faster into the abyss;
No escape, no salvation can I grasp.
My world spiralling out of control;
A life quite amiss,
Every breath, every step quite the task;
Suffocating burdens, unbearable shame--
Each takes its toll.

The madness! The deafening madness---Truly it's no game.

A setting sun quietly sinks beyond the horizon of a tortured soul,
Hungry shadows, unchecked,
Untamed, can't escape the dreadful bond.
They feast upon a tattered mind,
A soul deceived a soul so blind.

With the needle's bitter sting,
It'll all be ok, if only for a day----
Sweet comfort from the pain to
Which I cling,
Comfort, somehow, some way.

It won't be long I know,
Before we sup unflinchingly upon
Life's bitter bowl,
How this world became so wrecked,
Who truly knows?
The madness ever closer as cosmic winds serenely

Where did yesterday go?
Childhood innocence in tow.
Taking with it Mother's loving embrace.
Staring into as evil and horrendous mirror and what I see is not my own face.

Where? Where did sanity go?
