the end of

By Devil lyn

  a stroke of bedlam
in the depth
of your spinal irises …
it`s obvious
you like what you see,
it`s obvious
you despise what you know;
no one ever decides to take this delusional path
they just arise with the dawn
tend to the business at hand
with only a thought drifting a through ~
don`t look,
and it won`t hurt

    Dev, I see this as someone struggling with their inner demons... knowing they are there, but trying not to acknowledge them... sometimes you win... sometimes... Nicely penned! ~worm~

    Sorry Dev I just can't lock in on this one . I can't pull the trigers if I"m not sure of the target . All the markers I add up befuddle me . And I am asking is it about suicide , or medication . Mental . . . you mention delusional . But I enjoy the struggle of trying to figure it out . If I were God . . . but I'm not . Maybe I found the truth and I'm holding it my hand . . . so unaware .
