Poem: That Night


This is the longest poem I have every attempted. I feel like I should explain this one but in the end I suppose people can put their own interpretation onto it. It was one that felt right to write though. So I did.

 

That Night

 

The world was silent and still

Madness reigned and ruled

Pain echoed through my soul

 

Madness sang;

This isn’t right!

To be grounded into this life

To know this endless battle

Understand bodily strife

 

The world was silent and still

Madness reigned and ruled

Pain echoed through my soul

 

Madness sang;

Don’t play this game.

I screamed to the night,

It isn’t right!

Silence reigned

 

The world was silent and still

Madness reigned and ruled

Pain echoed through my soul

 

I wished to slip away

Silence the pain that way

sought the end denied me

…yet stayed.

Never free.

 

The world spun away

my screams echoed

madness reigned
