Nomenclature of a Mad Man

You excite me, enthrall me, entice, and take all of me.
You open my mind and my eyes and my soul.
You keep me from banging the gates of hell:
My inferno, my sanctuary, the place I call home.
You come fast and hard omnipotent then gone
Confusing and bewildering my impenetrable mind.
But, when I cry to the rafters fists above my head, know-
Tears fall for you to be alone.

You despise me, loath me, linguistically dispose of me.
I kill who you are what you will be and were.
As you die on the floor you will toss me aside,
But I’ll push and I’ll tug at the throne you built high
Never caring, never sharing, but taking it all.
When you cry to your mirror at home late at night
Wanting for nothing but needing a fight
You won’t remember my hair, my face, or my name. But,
Tears fall for you to be alone.

We create and compose the grandest of sins
Then watch as they rot us from the inside out.
What once was you and what once was me:

Now,
Two corpses asleep
Two corpses awake
The sun’s breath against their neck.

They can’t see, they can’t hear,
They don’t feel, think, or taste-
But the scent reminds them
Of what was, will be, and is-
Of what exists and does not
Of the toll which love gives.

Together, burning, scent brings forth a tear
From each cold dead eye.
Confused and bewildered, forgotten, and dead,
One for the other, while the other in his head,
Tears fall for you to be alone.
