I can feel it draining
my sanity that is
All the while I’m straining
like taking a pop quiz

Some days are good, some are bad
the voices do their own thing
My brain becomes their sketch pad
or a theory of the string

It’s slipping through my fingers
yep my sanity you guessed
Only a slight bit lingers
and for that I am quite blessed

I make it through the days
most seemingly normal
my mind is in a haze
but I appear formal

The voices may be crazy
but I trust they’ll get me through
Just stay clear of Scorsese
or the psycho will ensue

It’s fleeting but I’m ok you see
it’s a fact I embrace and admit
for the beauty of insanity
is a personality may split

I wonder if any of us is truly ever fully 'sane' I guess it could be argued that most of us are not these carzy days.
Good prose and thanks for visiting me and the comment
