I Claimed Insanity

I Claimed Insanity

A Poem by JustALotusFlower

I stood up in class.

Yelled at the teacher.

Told her to die.

They claimed Insanity


I started to mumble.

The principle got scared.

The insitute was called.

They claimed Insanity.


I told my parents.

About the demons I saw.

The screams I heard.

They claimed Insanity.


I lost focus more.

My eyes started to fade.

I developed a dark side.

They claimed Insanity.


I tried to plead.

To tell them I was sane.

But we both knew.

They claimed Insanity.


The institute was terrible.

I started to think suicidal.

I couldnt tell anyone.

Because They claimed Insanity.


I would cut myself.

Let out all of my blood.

Just to feel sane.

Because They claimed Insanity.


I couldnt take the pain.

Being locked up, for knowing the truth.

I made a noose.

And hung myself.

Because finally.

I claimed Insanity....

Darkness envolopes us all. Its the certain part of us that we cannot control. the poetic side of me is dark. you have yet to be consumed by the insanity of life, which consumed me once before. tak.. more..
