The quiet room is overcast with longings of insanity
Stale familiar secrets rudely waltz right through my mind
I've lost my moving thoughts, madness leaking untrained vanities
My unwashed face is pale, your penetrating gaze is most unkind

I'm past the point of gummybears, starbursts oozing from my brain
I've glimpsed what lies behind the truth, desperado inklings
Just another clinking part, reactionary's bolted chain
Dispassion reigns in haunted eyes, consumed with black hole tinklings

Inject a bit of poison's magic, evil wrapped in cellophane
Dangerous deceptions, dazzling ballgowns dressed in white
Committing crimes of self-delusion, delirium's henbane
Caked with heavy streaks of mud, disappointing blight

No longer graceful, beautiful, the primal voice invades
Eerie midnight writhings, ruined words and phrases set a new refrain
Harsh deceitful lies, no clapping hands of accolade
Abandoned consummation, just another fawning doe named Jane

I liked the first two stanza, I got a little twisted on the last two. The mind can sure give a wild ride.
