I feel Her creeping, seeping
like a dark and evil cloud She descends.
Controlled by malicious powers,
my defenses fall.
She now posses every action,
every thought malformed.
It seems she's finally caught me, The Madness.

The author's comments:
I wrote this poem for a hero of mine, Ludwig van Beethoven. It is said he went mad in his later days and this is trying to explain what was going on in his mind at the time.
