An old piece when I was in deep darkness. I will try not to dig up too much of my dark past. Hope you enjoyed otherwise.

"Pregnant With Madness"


The wounds are bigger now

Blood turning into ink

Dripping onto a blank page

I sit crying


Darkness stitches herself to me

Her sickness contagious

Blinding me from the light

And yet I see a glimmer . . .


Demons climb into my hair

Clawing at my clavicles

Snatching every bit of sanity

Tearing me apart


They stole my pens

Ripped my notebooks

Screamed and cursed at me

Told me I was hopeless


But somehow I am able to laugh

Though I write these words

With my ink blood

Dripping from its wounds


Staggering in pain

Yet satisfied, complete

My soul; untouched

Unbroken, but hurting still


The remains of my mind

Forming into poisonous butterflies

Flying off into a psychedelic world

. . . the one I created


Unsettled; though peaceful

This thing moves in me . . .


Impregnated by Anger

Pregnant with madness

Shall I abort this abomination?

Or let it live?


Shall I conceive to deceive?

How . . . how can I birth a monster

Who is the root of insanity?


But I did birth Madness

Didn’t I . . .?


Or maybe I had a miscarriage

And now here lies Madness

Dead in between the lines

Of this poem


Can you guess?

But wait . . .

Maybe you already know


Maybe you can even hear

My ink blood dripping its lullaby

On the edge of your mind

Maybe you are the one who is mad and not I


Maybe . . .


Although Madness could be alive now

Her essence

Flowing thru my veins

Writing this poem

For you

  I think to have a flow or period where writing is all you can do and it takes over your thoughts is a kind of madness, and perhaps writing is a cure. Oh, I long to be mad as I once was, when each indelible emotion dripped in ink--or cyber ink anyway--and there was relief until the next point of madness; then the pauses between is where the madness seemed.
