~ My name is Madness ~

From the vaults of time, I am thinking of revising this one.

I haunt the Mind.
To me, nothing is so sweet
as the feast of sanity.
Memories and Fear are my tools of choice;
Nothing can better defeat Reason.
I plague the Soul.
Eroding it into a void.
I litter the hallways and passages
of the Conscience,
with tangled webs of confusion.
Destroying the Human Will
and Spirit is satisfying to me.
I infest the Heart.
Sending it messages to over-ride the Mind;
To become
Master.
Illusions, of course.
Emotional anguish is probable.
Despair is imminent.
Some humans are fettered and chained by their imaginations,
and I become the Ultimate Master.
Finally, the path leads but two ways:
To my brother,
Death.
Or to me.
Some know me as a padded cell without windows,
while they slobber on themselves,
babble incoherently,
or do the “Thorazine Shuffle”.
To others,
I am the enemy unseen,
always dogging their mental footsteps…
What am I to you?
My name,
is Madness.

About dragonkatet

Regarding the blog name, Dragon’s Dreams ~ The name comes from my love-affairs with both Dragons and Dreams (capital Ds). It’s another extension of who I am, a facet for expression; a place and way to reach other like-minded, creative individuals. I post poetry and images that fascinate or move me, because that’s my favorite way to view the world. I post about things important to me and the world in which we live, try to champion extra important political, societal and environmental issues, etc. Sometimes I wax philosophical, because it’s also a place where I always seem to learn about myself, too, by interacting with some of the brightest minds, souls and hearts out there. It’s all about ‘connection(s)’ and I don’t mean “net-working” with people for personal gain, but rather, the expansion of the 4 L’s: Light, Love, Laughter, Learning.
