I am Insane

I am Insane 

I am lying on the floor gazing at the stars searching for souls in the sky. 

I am Insane. 

For I seek the presence of a human with substance

one that carries the sunshine 

& walks with words 

of love and knowledge 

somersaulting in his mouth.

I am Insane 

For my unspoken words are better left silenced.


I am Insane 

for the eyes that watch me demand neutrality, 

demand the wind to settle, 

the day to turn into night without a

rush of excitement greeting a young mind. 

I am Insane 

for reading books 

and loving  the words

 you don't  understand, 

as the new and blurry 

create fear in your surroundings.


 yes you.

I am expressing myself to you. 

The one that has eyes 

but remains blind.

The one that travels

in circles .

The one with strings attached 

to his hands .

You die without 

the keys to your lock 

as your existence  perishes 

without a map on the road 

or railways you've already touched. 

You have lived the life which you think everyone

is intrigued by

 but such life is no life. 

It is poetic and maybe a little too heavy for you to understand

 that birds that fly are free

 for they  live a life that  you and I will never live.


As the sky glitters with its infinite beauty 

you and I  remain  

darkened by the veil that 

covers our mind

and traps our inner self in 

an unwanted world.

I am Insane 

I am lying on the floor gazing at the stars 

searching for souls in the sky...

"somersaulting in his mouth."
I love this expression the most! Your poem is very well crafted and I really like your word choices. The tone of this piece has an almost foreboding quality to it but I love it as it is...
Beautiful write.
