So gentle you came. Like a whispering breeze, seeking still leaves.
Creating night-time shadows of a flock of caged birds inside my head.
A whip of your tongue, as if trying to extinguish a flickering candle,
Touched the back of my neck; electric tingles rippled down my spine!
You expel poisonous words, twisting my mind, like Ophelia I am drowning
In a sea of emotions that you hammer home like a wooden stave.
Insanity and are I good friends, yet I hate you with all the hate I can muster
Even dead flowers have a fragrance! Insanity has tainted me, taken me.
I sleep… you call uninvited. You sleep…I cry silent tears of desperation…
From the moment I was born, I was heading towards death,
Darkness is just a part of that journey, a lonely track heading nowhere!
The demons in my mind, sneak up when I least expect it, they don’t play fair
They don’t stick to the rules, there are no rules, except …..survival!
