Sanity Gone, Madness Reigns - Julie Tsiricos

I am not afraid of the devil

I have looked him in the eye

I met with him quite recently

Through the cold night air we did fly


He was my constant companion

When I was forgotten by everyone

I did not choose to invite him

He turned up, and inside he did come


He wrapped his tender arm around me

And made me feel less alone

He told me I could get what I wanted

And sat me on his fiery throne


He made me feel so secure

And he stopped me feeling sad

But the consequences of this were

I was now totally mad


Don’t get me wrong, I like being here

There are plenty of others like me

Giving up our sanity to him

And being just as afraid of as he



A reflection on how mental illness was sometimes thought to be the work of the devil.
