The looks pretty simple, there seems to be no problem at all. TEXT type allows 65535 characters, so that shouldn't be a problem.
Try to debug the SQL query by printing it out, and check for any syntactical errors.

' holds a special meaning in the SQL of end of string and so is the problem.

Probably becauase either you did not had ' in the data you were inserting or had the delimiter backslash for it.
