Not in chaos

madness overtakes not in chaos

but in moments of quietude and nothingness

when I can hear the entire world swaying to one lullaby

then, shall madness overtake me

it does every night

when the heart is sinking

and the ceiling is blurred

when there is only the muffled sound of my own cries

singing me to sleep

then shall madness overtake me

not in chaos

not in calamity

but when in doubt.
