Sanity’s Plea

In dead of night, awakened by fire, mind takes flight

Flame tendered on tension’s rise, thoughts rendered for distraction’s prize

Publicly alone, bubble of awareness none dare penetrate for cowardice sake

Tedious to play bullshit game, known not at all, save by name 

Reactionary smile displayed all the while, secrets known from burden of trial

Sanity lies in flimsy thread, bleeding from wounds not seen but felt instead
