The Madness Inside Me
There is a madness deep inside of me
that at times I can't control.
It is such an intrinsic part of me
that it's attached to my very soul.
I try to shut out the alluring song
that this tempest sings,
But I can not resist this seduction,
the promise that it brings.
The madness shreds me into pieces,
a ragged ribbon upon the wind.
The ends blowing in the flurry
my shredded soul I can not mend.
The tattered pieces clinging together
trying to maintain their hold.
Silently begging for savior,
their struggles go untold.
The ribbons are so battered,
the battle they have lost.
Scattered in this storm of life,
paying the final cost.
