Crazy

Trapped inside my own head
With nothing but my own fevered dreams to comfort me.
I know the pain of the madman;
He lives inside of me.
I've felt the strength of demons
And the weakness of self- preservation.
And hope. Hope.
Hey, parents, do you know where your kids are tonight?
Are they locked away inside of themselves?
Are their minds slipping away?
Mama hen, mama hen . . .
The fox has taken your baby again.
Precious minds are a shame to waste
Memories are forgotten in haste.
I am losing all that is me . . .
Yet gaining something entirely different.
Something that acts like an animal
And speaks like God.
Comforts me like a best friend
And loves me like its child.
I am its child.
An innocent brat, ready for its teachings.
Ready to do what is told to me.
Believing all that is said to me.
Taking in all.
And living off of my fevered dreams.

This poet really created some fantastic imagery! I felt like I knew what they were going through even though I have never experienced anything like that. I am a poet myself and have personally been touched and moved by the strong, empowering words and imagery that was created in my head while reading it. Thankyou!

This poem was incredible, it reflected exactly how my life is turning out. For the past couple years I've felt myself slipping away and been all too aware of the monster inside. I hope we both can beat it.

Your poem is REALLY great! I have been suicidal and get angry and lost all the time. I feel no one cares, only because no one knows. I am still waitin for someone to figure out who the real me is.

This poem is really deep and meaningful it can be protrayed in various ways it translates the life of a person whom is deeply depressed and Suicidal hiding within themselves. I thought it was great.

It's almost eerie how much that poem resembles me. I am not a fan of poems that don't rhyme but I am amazed and shocked at how completly true that poem is. It defenitly sparked something in me and not many poems or poets can do that. Amazing job and I would love to read more of your work!
Audra
I loved this poem. I was able to relate to it so well. It was so amazing because I was never able to put those feelings into words and there it was in front of me! Well done!
nicole
I thought that this poem is a sweet and intersetiing poem it is very touching and true. It tells about life and love all at the same time! When i read this poem it makes me feel weird sorta like happy sad and mad at the same time. reading your poem makes me relize about my life and my past. i loved it alot and i think that you are a great poet and should keep your mind to poetry because you are really good at it and i envy you and your wonderful poem! well good luck on your future poems ~ your friend, Nikkie aka Shawty
fran
im not really sure how to properly put into words my feelings on what i have just read. this poem was incredible - it was deep, meaningful and touched on my particular situation in a way that i've found very few things do. it was so powerful, thought provoking and maturely written - quite chilling as well. i find myself repeatedly coming back and reading this poem every time i'm on the internet. you have an amazing gift for writing - i wish i was able to put my feelings into words as well as you can. im sure if i could, this poem would be something along the lines of what they would say.
