Love your madness

by Victoria Ramey   Feb 17, 2019


Embrace the darkness,
Feed the fear,
Learn to love all,
The madness in your nightmares...

Never run,
Never run for cover,
Never hide,
Never hide your tears,
Let it come and take you victim,
Hold you ransom,
No one will ever save you here...

Hold your breath now,
Take it in,
Slow your heartbeat,
Learn to live in this silence...

Never run,
Never run for cover,
Never hide,
Never hide your tears,
Let it come and take you victim,
Hold you ransom,
No one will ever save you here...

Embrace the darkness,
Feed the fear,
Learn to love all,
The madness in your nightmares.

    An unusual write that encourages the embracing of madness. At first my thoughts were I could understand embracing the madness of joy and fun but would find it impossible to embrace the dark madness that would make me its victim. Then the last line changed everything. "The Madness in your Nightmares" Suddenly a different slant which made sense. In the realms of nightmares you need to confront your demons to beat them whereas in life sometimes its a more dangerous road to do so. A thought provoking piece that got my little cells thinking. All the best Milly x
