Insanity

Insanity

A Poem by Sarah Marie

Insanity lives only
In the minds of those
Who wish it well,
Who wish to cling
To its ideas and beliefs-
There is no end
To insanity, only
The ability to fade away
In average’s name. 
Normality is too common
To disappear and be noticed
By its absence;
Yet insanity-madness-
It is too strong a thing,
Too rare and fleeting 
To not be missed,
To not be secretly desired.
Average may die and become
A sweet, faraway memory;
But insanity’s end will only 
Grow into a feeling,
The heart against the mind,
The soul against all that has been
And all still to come. 
Insanity’s mate is passion,
A misunderstood, misguided
Creation-it was banded long ago 
By all that is chaste and gracious;
Yet it is reborn every minute
Of every day when insanity
And creativity together reign.

This is a great piece. Be insane! Normal is boring. Insane doesn't need to be a literal term, but be yourself, be crazy, and don't be what you're "supposed to be." Well done.

Yay! :) Thank you! Glad you enjoyed this.
You seem to get better by the day Dear Sarah Marie. I like how this feels and a certain truth rings loudly throughout. You do have an eye for what is now and a way of putting that into words. Very good.

This is a fire that permeates the mind and soul. What so many fear, you breathe over us with a music of lush release to form words and dances and delights few ever know. Sing again and again for us, I beg you.
