Sanity Elusive

My sanity elusive

hides behind a million masks

my purity reclusive

says it won’t be coming back

my honesty abusive

always ready to attack

my love is not conducive

heart monitor goes flat

my selflessness seductive

only to draw others in

my intentions destructive

looking for a victim

Some will see me as broken

I can’t say that I’m not

More apt to say I’m choking

on words that I’m not saying

I am the prince whose slaying

The dragon of my mind

it breathes fire inside me

hides the gold that is behind

You may call me a psycho

I’ve got wristbands as proof

Put me in the sideshow

and I work at the ticket booth
