A Crumbling Mind


A fading darkness behind the eyes
     Leaving behind a pillar of lies
Exposing a framework of cries
     And a crown of bone

The deep sparks of the mind
     Begin to lose their bind
Cutting out the ability to find
     A mind to call your own

Great circuits fall quiet for ever
     Leaving no more endeavor
To banish the skin of night in the never
     And no sight in the light shone

The gears soon turn without guide
     Purpose is gone to hide
A blind and rumbling thing to side
     With whatever means brings home

A reason to push and go on
     Even as the means are gone
Left without logic to lean upon
     And reap the madness it has sown
