My Sweet Insanity

Poem By Andrea Rieck

My world is pink and black
Made of paint and carpenter’s hats!
Your world is dull and plain –
Hail the living of the sane!

Pain is overrated
I play alone here instead!
It’s all just a wicked game –
I’ll never let my emotions stain!

It’s easier when the clouds are green
The grass is better blue!
Here is where the lost ones sing –
They’re waiting now for you!

I’m done with the world I knew
I created my own instead!
Don’t try to pull me out –
I wont hear a word you said!

I’m too far away
In a place inside my soul!
It’s alright if you don’t see –
Earth’s never where I wanted to be!

They tell me I’m crazy
But really I’m smart!
I became numb –
Now no more grief can start!

I walk through stained-glass halls
Strange voices singing 'round!
Loss tears from within –
But they tell me to push it down!

Now purple fairies dance on by
Holding hands in glee!
In sunlight flowers bloom –
At night they fly to me!

Don’t feel sorry for me
The only one who escaped!
Instead grieve for yourselves –
Lost in your world of pain!

Here everything’s immortal
All physical never ends!
Here I don’t have to pay –
Sorrow has no where to stay!

I’ll never take your hand
Stop trying to set me free!
Why can’t you see? –
My sweet insanity is the place I want to be!

It's Autumn Again

It’s autumn again
Leaves whisper the sound of our past
In loss they pay a descent
To the ground we fall

Light Bringer

I’m the shadow that light casts away…
I’m the smoke that came after the fire
I’m the star that died the day it was born…
The one that cried for it after

The Broken Mirror

On the floor lies a secret now shattered
Watching eyes now lay as broken pieces
Harrower of one-time tales long battered
Speaks no more of sights of passing faces

Lullaby For A Lonely One

No prayers
No songs
No voices

Here By The River

Here at the river I sit
The sun is bleak
And the clouds are low
But beside me butterflies flutter to-and-froe
