A Cocktail of Long-Term Affects

this is madness; this is insanity

 

tight fists clenching strands of hair;

they beg for mercy;

your paintings bleed colors, they stain my beige walls;

brushes by the sink, paint cans on the floor;

dents on my heart, evidence is hard to conceal;

words scribbled on paper, torn and creased.

 

this is anger

 

shattered glass, blinking reflections;

spilt coffee, screaming confessions.

 

this is disbelief

 

hollow bones, aching muscles;

shadows of grief;

incomplete puzzles.

 

this is madness

this is insanity

 

this is love
