Off the edge of insanity

Off the edge of insanity

A Poem by tanaya

 

Grasping, grasping

Onto the edge

The edge of sanity

 

It’s a long drop

Down, down, down

No way up

 

Screaming,

No reply

 

Yelling for help

No help comes

 

Tumbling,

Falling,

Twirling

 

In the air

Reaching out,

Meeting only air

 

I am alone

Falling of the edge,

The edge of insanity

 

Screaming,

Yelling,

Shouting

 

Into thin air

Into the darkness

Falling

 

Of the edge of insanity

I really enjoy this, it's relatable.

As one that long since fell over the edge I loved the way you penned the fearful emotions, you open with a great image and build on it, very creative.
Keep em' coming

I can kind of relate to this poem. I really love the flow and kind of fast pace of it. Beautiful poem.

Everything is relative. Madness, sadness, happiness, joy, sanity and insanity. Still an ok poem..though nothing special. I'll read some other stuff. :)

This was great. I love the way you use the language. There was really good expression here. Keep it up!

Insane. Has no meaning. It has no separation of sane, it's only the way you look at it that may make it look different. I like this though, good job.
