Five Parts of Her

I-

Those who have known imprisonment, know
Freedom can be found even in a flower

And you wonder why I love rain

-II-

We were not reared in shade, in gardens
This desert has bred
Wild children

-III-

I walk in dreams, where no one sees
Be still; I know where you lie
But you do not know
My lies

-IV-

They trapped her soul in the
Heart of a diamond
She sparkled like a star, and yet
They found flaws in her

-V-

This night sky stretches on like a lost ocean
It seems to me that
I am doomed to drown tonight

Maenad

Why don’t they sing of
moonlight madness?
Of clutching your hair, swaying
In the impenetrable darkness, below
A black sky, heedless
Of the wet grass, of your wayward steps
Driven utterly feckless by
The music of the hollow eyed
Starving night
This must be how the sirens learnt their wailing
Crooning dumbstruck sailors to their doom

Look, my hands are empty and
My blind eyes overflowing, yet
My feet follow some unknown tune
Thrumming in my veins, my bones
This song of a sky with no moon

Of Madnesses- II

There are nights when you question your sanity 

There are moments when you question reality 

Blink once if you let sadness into your head

Blink twice if you let madness take you to bed 

And laugh, if they both fucked you in duality 
Crucified by your own thoughts, 

And by your own words, lynched
See, the problem is 

Windows of the mind open temporarily 

But doors get broken down 
That’s why people come unhinged

Of Madnesses 

The world came full circle 

Three hours past midnight

My heart grew full as the

Moon grew empty, and all

Semblance of reason shrunk away, contrite 

There is no one to hide behind

There is no one at this time

There is no one 

This is why I drink the nights away 

This is why I write

Madness 

Isn’t seeing things 
It’s opening your eyes

And seeing yourself
