  • Demented

    She lives, tormented,
    twisting, writhing, twitching.
    A love fermented,
    reeking, burning, stinging.

    She cries, infected,
    crumbling, withering, rotting.
    A mind segmented,
    slipping, unceasing, falling.

    A life so wretched,
    warping, molding, sinking.
    A broken mind, afflicted,
    tearing, clawing, staunching.

    Her sanity, lamented,
    mourning, moaning, weeping.
    A body so demented,
    unhinging, jumbling, rattling.

    WOW! a speed read into the deepest part of absolute insanity. I felt as if I had fallen off a cliff and was tumbling into eternity.

    Well done!!

        This is a heavy piece DV. What you have captured takes a few readings to absorb. So sad.

        Hello Darthvader, Galloping into the maddening void of despair, shooting from the hip and no holes barred in this rush of vibrantly dark poetry. The unbearable and exhausting pain of a demented soul in apt, straight and excellent verse. Well done indeed. Regards, Tony.

            You unloaded with this one darth. Well done. It takes a special skill to write so intensely.

              Thank you, lunar glide to be honest when I started writing this one, my first plan was to actually write it about an extremely unhealthy relationship, but it kind if changed to insanity as I wrote it so... Whatever. I rolled with it.

              But thank you, that means a lot
