A Lost Thought
Poem By Brandon Chiles
It's been so long since I saw that face,
it appeared before me like it had no trace,
a memory lost and a flash of remembrance,
a second look back would reveal nothing,
as the chill crept through my spine,
my heart would beat faster,
as the cold embraced such a monstrous thought,
pain would become my friend.
The blade would drive deep into the skin,
as I could feel the heat sink in,
blood is nothing new,
for it's what I will use to decorate this room,
what have you done now?
All this for another one lost to the chapters of time,
for it is what is truly unforgiving,
without hesitation we devolge ourselves to madness,
to give objects our qualities and properties,
or to become so depressed that we would take our own lives,
madness is what makes us human,
or is it something more?
The chill has never left my spine from that day,
where the face would reanimate itself into my blissful mind,
for curtains hide away the light,
we put such things up to hide others in our wake,
so forget what you've read,
experience is all there is to life,
she taught me that with nothing but a glance,
as I lay victim to this requiem dance,
my mind is lost...
