The Illusive Way



The insanity consumes her mind
In a state of misery and sadness
Grasping to find the glimmer of Truth,
Hoping to find it in the madness

Her injuries bleed and stain the air
with crimson and
blackened despair
She surrenders to it's fateful state
As demons take her to their lair

There she dances in Desperation's delight
the familiar darkness turns on a light
Inflamed with anger,
Soul filled with rage
Tears open the door now
Of Hope engaged
Love's redemption, Grace flooding in
Through the door of Faith
She is free again!

By Sandy Sinn

Sandy Sinn

Sandy Sinn is a Southern California native who enjoys anything creative and aesthetically appealing. Ms. Sinn suffers from bipolar 1 disorder, and advocates for the mentally ill. She uses writing as a form of healing and reflection surrounding the intense emotional experiences she endures daily from the "highs" and "lows" associated with bipolar disorder. Many of her poetry is dark, but darkness has been her companion for as long as she can remember. She began writing poetry around age 9 to cope from the dysfunction at home, and realized the power of Art back then. She could make others feel what she wanted them to feel through her short stories and poetry. Since then, she has written hundreds of poems, and also specializes in writing erotic mini reads which are published on various social media platforms. She owns a custom erotica service, of which she is the sole writer for, and is working on publishing her first book in a trilogy series of dark , redemptive poems. She wants to share with the world her "gift set" of books in hopes of helping those who are struggling emotionally to find the hope they need to go on. Ms. Sinn believes if we could read a poem, book, or other piece of literature, and feel some type of way about it, then the artist was successful. "Art unites us all together, because at the core of our existence, we all experience the same emotions regardless of the circumstances we are in." -Sandy Sinn more…
