The grey follows me
Blurs my vision and clouds my thoughts
The veil of confusion hangs before my eyes
And instead of dismissing another’s glance
Reels in the reactions of disgust as I am stood helpless behind
The transparent mask.
I stand at the mercy of the South prevailing winds as the
Illusion of billowing folds of cloth enters my minds eye and
Disrupts the meditative state of being.
I am surrounded by many, screaming, wrenching at their gut,
Burning from within and hurling abuse at my figure of torture.
Anxiety grasps me by the throat, unleashed by the offensive
Words of once loved lands, and suffocates my breath with
Pain and overgrowth.
As would a living grave hold you down to the centre of the
Earth, so would your tongue tie you down to the words you once
Promised a decade ago, and forgive you only at the utterance
Of your last sigh.

You have had your instincts torn from flesh.
You have had your insight shaded from truth.
You have had your trust tied in chains.
You have had your faith hung up to die.
It bleeds from the contaminated cells of your gut.
It multiplies, germ by germ, until the disease is rotting
Layers beneath the organ of anxiety,
Trapping the sensation of suffocation within the cavity of pain.
You feel loss.
You feel absence.
You feel a void.
You feel alone.
Exhaustion breeds upon itself, within itself,
Raping each and every inhalation of life you struggle to capture.
Sadness cradles the victim, wrapping your soul in darkness
To protect you from the symptoms of an enlightened emotion.
The violent attack on your integrity allows your pride
To growl and glare into the face of intellect
And devour the very words that are intended to heal.
You seek a cure in the muddled medicine of thought,
Yet the disease has set deep, allowing only for a deprived state
Of recuperation to be your comfort.
With tears of defence,
Released from the cancerous growth imbedded in your memory.
Your tears flow with nuclear power and your
Vulnerability is evaporated into a cloud of acid.
Molten asbestos runs like lava through your veins,
Threatening your fragile existence,
Drowning your hope in ash.
A single voice prevails, above the logic of reason,
Beyond the constraints of logic.
A pill of health,
A band-aid in the battlefields of hell.
A faint recording of it’s grinding texture
Rotates amidst your collective self punishment,
Resonates beyond the torture of guilt.
