The frayed ends of sanity

The frayed ends of sanity.
Concealed by my vanity.
Thankfully, you don't see.
These demons following me.
The past, engulfs.
The present seems neverending. 
The future holds.
Fortunes untold.

The frayed ends of sanity.
Whatever happened to humanity!
Everyone wants a piece of me.
Gnashing, they're calling me.
All around, blood I see.
Whatever happened to humanity. 

The frayed ends of sanity.
This and that, so much disparity.
I hear the winds calling my name.
They say they can take away pain.
The rustling of leaves.
Tells me not to cleave. 
I'm standing on what's left of me.
The only land in an island of sea.

Frayed ends of sanity.
I want to feel some happy.
Joy I do have; but now I want to be savvy.
With whatever is left of me.
Disappearing memories ....
Regression from oppression.
These cells are crumbling into termination.
But the blood that flows is still warm.
Although within those cells, creatures swarm.

Frayed ends of sanity.
I hear them all after me.
I'm still here at the turnpike. 
Survived, telling them to take a hike.
The rope I'm holding on to.
Has surpassed its maximum stretch.
And now fate depends on a flimsy thread.

Frayed ends of sanity.
I hear them calling me.
The frayed ends of sanity.
Maybe here I'll lie and be.
The frayed ends of sanity.
Maybe there'll be peace finally 
The frayed ends of sanity.
I hear them calling me.

      Dear All,
      This one here was my only reader for months when I had zero followers/readers. I’d check my stats and find just one view everyday/each post. And it didn’t take much guessing to figure out who that one person was!!!
      This one here is my oldest reader/follower. πŸ˜˜πŸŽ€πŸ€©πŸ˜πŸ˜˜πŸŽ€πŸ€©πŸ˜˜πŸ˜πŸ˜˜πŸŽ€πŸ˜˜πŸ€©πŸ˜πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§
