∘⪻ dark edges of my soul ⪼∘

∘⪤∘

the dark edges of  my soul

draw fear and madness

like a babe to a tit

sucking me dry

∘⪤∘

leaving  nothing

but a false embrace

“Mad World”   Adam Lambert

inspired by my poem “insanity” posted 23 April 2010 ~

insanity waits

at the dark edges of my soul

longing to embrace

“Mad World”   Adam Lambert

lyrics ~

All around me are familiar faces
Worn out places
Worn out faces
Bright and early for their daily races
Going no where
Going no where
Their tears are filling up their glasses
No expression
No expression
Hide my head I wanna drown my sorrow
No tomorrow
No tomorrow
And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you
I find it hard to take
When people run in circles it’s a very very
Mad world
Mad world
Mad world
Mad world
Children waiting for the day they feel good
Happy birthday
Happy birthday
And to feel the way that every child should
Sits and listen
Sits and listen
Went to school and I was very nervous
No one knew me
No one knew me
Hello teacher tell me what’s my lesson
Look right through me
Look right through me
And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you
‘Cos I find it hard to take
When people run in circles it’s a very very
Mad world
Mad world
Mad World
Mad world
And I find it kind of funny
I find it kind of sad
The dreams in which I’m dying are the best I’ve ever had
I find it hard to tell you
‘Cos I find it hard to take
When people run in circles it’s a very very
Mad world
Mad world
Enlarging your world
Mad world
