sanity

I want that right-brained brilliance
that accompanies mental illness.
That invisible inner-cerebral muse
whispering a poetic genius.
I want that megalomania -
The imagined greatness
born of melancholy
raised by decades
and immortalized in anthologies.
The sexual deviancy in the past
that haunts and whispers
"write
write
write
and be brilliant."

to be all inspired and writing-y like you seem to be.
i MISS that. where's it gone?
