madmen only

a caged wolf lies within this solitary mind
red lines, marked by irreverent thought,
streak now my back raw…
oh that i could escape the pain of this duality!
but that i linger on the edges of such
a passionate embrace,
knowing how the devil in me
longs the confines of this constraint…
craving release, i find myself fevered
by the very arms that hold me so-
and I wonder at how I can face myself
