Gothic-Surrealism

Words of a world, strange though wonderful.

Much Madness is Divinest Sense

Much madness

is divinest sense –

 

An eye that hath discerned the severest madness,

according to Emily’s judicious eyes, hath much sense –

 

The starker lunacy

be equated to divinity –

 

‘Tis common, unwritten law that we assent common beliefs

And ‘tis uncommon beliefs that common law demurs –

 

In this, as all overcome,

The stoic few as she will come –

 

Sanity hath common sanction

Or, you’re forthwith a risk –

 

Touched by a chain

And bound in shame –
