Bob's Steering WheelBob's Steering WheelBob's Steering Wheel by wiz2525
Upon graduation from high school, still living at home with Mom and my sister and not sure what my next step would be, I was out with some friends from high school. We were riding around and it was near 1am in the morning. We had been smoking pot, but it was time to go home. They were on their way to dropping me off at Mom's.
Meanwhile, my mother, who at this time owned her own bar, had my sister in the middle of the front seat of her Oldsmobile 88 while her current man of the day, Bob, was on the far side. Mother, I was later informed, was trying to get home as quickly as possible before he 'blew up'.
Unfortunately, she didn't make it there before the inevitable explosion.
As my friends turned the corner through the last signal light on the street leading toward my mom's house, I saw the '88 sitting at a 45 degree angle, front end kicked in about a foot or more, and as we pulled past the abandoned car, a hole in the passenger side front windshiel
on the verge of madnessOn the verge of madness i stand,on the verge of madness by nono-footballic
sanity ;with its pure white light,
desperately pulling me from my right,
while madness; with its comforting blackness,
tries to engulf me from my left,
i stand there motionless,
sanity tries to convince me to stay with her,
with her smart wise words,
yet i hear madness's whispered creative wild ideas,
they seem a lot like my own,
unfeeling i tilt slightly towards madness,
i hear sanity screaming and pleading,
it alerts me,
i shift back to my neutral grounds,
yet again i hear madness calling to me with its soft convincing whispers,
promising me an unlimited supply of happiness and freedom,
but again i hear sanity's pure clear voice pleading ,
and promising to give me knowledge and respect,
i stand there on the verge of madness,
in a total limbo between sanity and madness,
between happiness and knowledge,
between freedom and respect,
not knowing which side to take,
i stand there ,
a victim of this eternal war of sanity and madness.
