Sanity? WHAT IS IT!

Broken
Can I put in words
This feeling
That I’m feeling?
Will you understand it?
Will you understand me?

It’s art
I heard
I also heard
The world
Is scarce
Of artists

Can you hear
Glass shatter
When it falls?
Yet, you can’t hear
My heart’s cries
When it breaks!

It’s deafening, I know
Like the sound of death
Eerie
Like the dread of night
Well, I’ve been falling!

Can you hear that?
Most people don’t
Can’t
Singing
To the hypnotic tune
Of sanity

So, can you tell me
What this…
“Sanity”
Is?
