What should I say to madness?
He is calling to me now
Should I implore him to remain?
Or, break away somehow?
What should I ask of madness?
He is waiting at my door
Should I question his intentions?
Or, give into him once more?
What should I beg of madness?
He is kneeling at my feet
Should I tell him to release me?
Or, instead concede defeat?
Children’s joyful laughter
Is hope inviting me to stay
Madness leaves despairingly
Until another day
