Madness – Death Poem

Late nights I sit, chair by the fire, with burning desire.
Drunk on the darkness
Tipsy on twilight.
I am alive, oh so alive
and I am dead, dead as the stone walls enclosing me,
holding me, the bright embers scolding me.

Not a sound punctures the silence, no sight interrupts blindness.

I’m alive, I am dead, I’m alive, I am dead
I am, I am, I am

A sound descends
Just one notes, hanging in the air
Teasing, pleasing, easing.

NO!

Maddening, maddening!

And then another, below it
and then another, above it

Soon a symphony is playing

And it’s madness, madness
Chaos, Anarchy, Blasphemy, Suffering!

Head is spinning, ears on fire, mind BURNING
Oh God!

Then one note, singing, singing, singing

Soothing, Gentle, Beautiful.

It fades, It’s gone

I’m alone.

I am dead, I’m alive, I am dead, I’m alive

I am dead, dead as the stone walls that enclose me
The embers that no longer scold me.

Smoke is all that is left, gone with the first subtle breeze
departing, fleeting, flying.

Gone, Gone, Gone
