Corridors of Insanity

She moves alone with fear frosting around her
Cold, at doom peering through opaque veils
The past leers from unforgiving haunted windows
On shadows she is thrown to as Destiny tires

Was that the winds of scandal still howling? 
They keened as death danced on his impending feet
Death would twist her reality to their custom-fit size
They would judge again, stones on her morality

She smiled at memories, at truant joy
How many times had she died in love’s arms!
Love had plundered, when she gave her all
Ice thorns bleeding her solo essence

‘They will all go away, no more claims now
Its just my life and me, the only duo that ever is’
And she walks, a grey shadow in the early mist
To death’s haunting call, down corridors of insanity…

    When love plunders a heart tis not love but conquest from claws of crows...I see the warrior in you, the woman beyond body, a soul stout against illusion my Diva. "She smiled at memories, at truant joy...On shadows she is thrown to as Destiny tires..." I love this pride amidst the dark! Outstanding metaphors Bindu...J.A.B.

    another poem of yours I had missed. With your usual flair for the mystical, Bindu. I enjoyed the metaphor in this one: the winds of scandal howling. And death dancing on his impending feet.
