Crazy is a poem about life - well, not life in general, but specifically my life. The opinions expressed here are not necessarily those of Steffanie in her right mind, and all of my opinions and comments become null and void after 3 hours, excluding Daylight Savings Time, Goodnight.

This poem originally was published in Sad Poems - Depression and Suicide Poems

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!
