A ‘sickness of the mind’
such a tragedy
the “state of being mad’
or plain old insanity

But what if being crazy
was none of this at all
what if madness was
the urge of a great call

A call from gods forgotten
of mania and lunacy
a message for those who listen
a lesson in humanity

But sometimes madness can be
something else entirely
sometimes madness can be
darkness for eternity.
