Maydays: Poem – Tankas – “The Best Kind of Mad.” #Maydays #amwriting 


Thank you to K.L. Caley from new2writing for hosting #Maydays prompts. Today’s prompt is good madness. 



I love that you have that —

Good madness, a bit of quirk.

Laughing and smiling, 

I’d rather have you a bit crazed, 

I worry when you’re lost, sad.


When you’re mad I know you’re —

Alive; your heart beating genius. 

Found in Wonderland, 

Where my favourite Alice went, 

Your my Mad Hatter; my match.


Not everyone would get —

Your peculiar mind which bends, forms.

Brilliant, but held, 

By societies normal.

I love your real craziness.


Genuinely you, 

I never worry you’re fake.

You always reveal, 

A hint of absurdity, 

You finish my sentences.


Your crazy begins,

It meets with my own and we’re —

Blessed to be us; home.

In our otherly world lost, 

We are the best kind of mad.

      Haha. I could see that. Not where I was heading at all. Mad in the form of genius and more a kind of weird. They relate to each other because they are both the same type of crazy. Christian Grey was more cold I’d say and say and angry inside. Thanks for reading Rosema 🙂
