Deconstructing Madness-Inspired by Kno: The New Day

Picture me shaking and shivering
delirious like a lost prophecy
destiny to die and a reason behind madness
losing my mind every day I sit in this vacant cell
echoes go in vain and 🤬 becomes the musical
fap fap like the taps of the conga drums
insanity becomes the visual for things to come
insomnia moments and dream like settings
a walking dreamer looking for a way out of this common close casket
a bastard drifting into a method of common commodity
how could I allow my own crushing blows be my security blanket
I remember when vanity became my beautiful ugly
a way to be somebody in a world of nobodies that pump up their egos
leave their feelings at the door and rely on people
deep this is sounding because I lost my mind
yes I the poet behind this blood soak love letter
lost my way and hoping that a prayer becomes latitude
to free the bird from a dumb sparrow wish
of flying in bad weather away from this sickening madness
hope for the best and pray for a mistress
sick like thought provoking and perverted ways
becomes the motive behind this sick like poetry
sort of like a save me from being save
and let me be a blind sheep like the rest
hate my flesh and my commitment to the almighty
because of the hypocrisy that goes into such beliefs
deep like thoughts of putting a fake christian on a stake
while my faith is gone like the fate of this fallen martyrs fears
wake up dreamer this is reality
looking at my hands typing upon the keys
my eyes are shifting and my hopes become a 🤬 man's desire
fail to receive the bottle
the fire is full throttle in my gut
save me angel oh please protect me
from the horrors of my indecent ways
emo like yes but just a normal acting
awards come my way when I yell at my wife
and she stares in awe for my yelling in unison
while she lives in her personal world away from mines
blown out of proportion and I sleep with a head on desk setting
until teacher calls upon me and I show off my telling of a story
of a man that escape the prison and sees the beauty
of a world that he used to see
