Madness.

I love the way this memory flows along
Marching across my rights and wrongs
Why do you keep telling me that you’re gone-?

Still hearing your sweet voice in my head
But you’re not here anymore
So I take off my clothes and lay naked upon my floor
Why have you taken my heart-?
Why have you killed our dreams-?
Tormented screams
So I run into the halls smashing windows
Grabbing paintings made by you and burning them in the kitchen sink
-
Jessica
You were my pen and ink
Where are you my love-?
Broken wings
Slaughtered dove
Shall I cut my wrists?
Would that make you remember me?
Shall I kill?
Just for the thrill
Shall I take this gun-?
Playing the reaper for my neighbors just for the fun…?
Don’t bang on my door
I guess it’s time to settle this score
Tick tock tick tock
Goes the clock
I am a bomb
Yes its time that I go
Yes its time that I go
Yes its time that I go
Oh my God this time I’m really going to blow.

Madness.

Artist's Description

As artists we all know what is meant by having a “Muse”. For me it is not always about having a physical relationship with my muse. Sometimes its purely mental. Like a painter sometimes uses a model, a sculpture sometimes uses a model, Well writers also sometimes use a model. Now I can’t talk for the painter or the sculpture. And I also can’t talk for other writers, but when the poem or in some cases notebooks are filled and its time to move on to the next model there is a time for morning. Like when someone we love dies we morn in stages. The first stage for me is denial, then comes anger, then comes self pity and depression(sometimes self destructive behavior like drinking too get drunk) then finally comes acceptance and the wanting to move on to a new muse. In this poem I was in the anger stage of my morning.
