You have taken everything from me.
I beg of you,
do not take my sanity,
Do not tarnish that which is so
I will give you whatever you wish,
obey your every command
if only you release her.
do not do this.

This is something that came to me yesterday while driving. I was listening to Phil Collin’s In The Air Tonight. I let it simmer overnight and began writing this morning with that song playing in the background. The poem seems to have taken on a life of its own. Where will it lead us? Into the light, or into the deepest parts of hell.
