Ideation (A Poem)

A single combusting encounter
transfigures a muddled mind 

a mutiny! corroding sadness
altering all fulfilment to ashes 

tip-toe around my fallen tears,
allowing the black pool to gather
at my feet 
Tragedy is drafted and to be endured
alone only accompanied by darkness 

look-away while the defunctive mists
suffocate as they must protect 

shelter the unaware – allowing a final
descent into another untimely slip into madness 
Unsheathe the lunatics mentality, exposing it,
letting him perform his final ballad 

pathetic as it may be – watch him sink into
a sad emotion abyss with no escape 

grappling between reality and death
– wrong or right – an eventual leap of faith 
Another life left with an unknown fate…

Between the lines

"As writers and dreamers, we may never fit in (what they call) normality. Who cares? You and me, fulfilling old legends, we stay awake in each other’s dreams. We live for ever and a day in each other’s stories. We share memories of things that never happened. You and me. That’s the level of faith given upon our entwined souls!"
