    There is no rest in confusion
    Even sleep is permeated by insidious destruction
    What of the human capacity to heal?
    It’s a worthless idea
    Once decay sets in

    Like a rusted rake scratching inner organs
    Delirium becomes an unavoidable agony
    Oblivion rises
    Similar to a bleeding geyser

    If there was one carefree day greeted by a serene mind
    Then perhaps hope would be a fit to the puzzle
    But the pieces smash together
    Creating chaos and disorder

    When senselessness sets in
    Mental fever becomes a heroin parasite
    The agony is stolen away
    Only to be wrought again upon the host
    A thousand times over

    Thoughts without a home, or space
    Become commonplace
    Shivering in the cold biological rejection
    Leading to self-infection

    There are sometimes when having two tails
    Upon a coin would save us all a headache

    I have no place to call home!​
  2. The title of this poem scared me, until I saw what section this was posted at. Anyways, good poem. I should write one soon.

    Thanks BP. I'm not sure exactly why seeing it posted here would make much difference. I use the term Delirium quite literally in this piece of work, as I've experienced it quite often to the point where it has/does impair my functioning.
  4. No problem, InnerStrength. I liked the poem. The reason the word "Delirium" startled me is because I thought someone I knew had returned to the site, or perhaps someone was referring to her, and not a poem, until I then noticed it was in this section. I'm probably going to be somewhat affected by the word Delirium for awhile because of what the word reminds me of.
