As promised for dear Jade, here goes!

'Lo and behold those who've crossed this path!
For you to be here, you too must be mad!
So please, please, step right in, you're welcome,
After all, we're one and many, our home!
Oh, the pictures on the wall? All trophies one and all!
No, no, not of those I have killed
Those trophies are silly, unfulfilled!
I'm talking of the wars, yes, which wage in the mind
Which are worse, much worse than 'ny other kind.
Yes, yes, don't you see, the cracks on the wall?
Beyond lies oblivion and sanity's fall!
Me? Crazy? Hah! That's what you'd say
But but, you've not yet seen it my way.
Crazy, I say, is to stay and comform
Swallow, nod and take form
Of a sickening system which mutilates me
Disease ridden and cripples the free!
You! Oh so very sane you are
Locked in yourselves, seeing no stars
Taking no flights, risking no fights.
You see me bound here, do you not?
I care little, there's naught out there but rot.
Today, decay, all goes away
It takes but a slip for it all to stray,
Like sheep who's lost the flock
Like a boat with no dock,
You'll soon see, love and learn to rely
On that inner beast you sought to despise.
Learn, assume, and admit you are whole
Despite all layers, pages and folds
Which we care to hide and cover ourselves with
To safekeep our cores, and protect the pith.
Call me lunatic if you will, but you are insane
To indulge yourself in the ephemerous game
Which you vicariously live and cling with despair
Feeding false thoughts of the skin that you wear.
All is but thought, feelings and sliver of senses
And all that we know comes in past tenses
So in the end, if you call me mad,
Surely you too have problems to add
And if you find yourself at the door to this place,
Know that you already are out of the race
Let it fester, my dear, the seed of Madness within...
Grow and be free!
....and walk right in.

The works of the mind are hard and strange to comprehend. Funnily enough, there's far too many corners in one's mind which are similar to that. In the end well, I loved it!

I was thinking. You've dropped by my gallery, yes? If you see something you like, perhaps I could write a similar piece for this wee picture here! Or any other which you'd chose from your own doings. Could be fun to start doing this manner of pairings :)

Interesting, sort of reminds me of 'House on Haunted Hill' (if that is the right name of that movie - the new one, not the old vincent price one), and Ghost Ship.

Awesome stuff!
