A Mad Girl’s Song

A solemn walk

across the night sky,

Cluster of stars

are wrapped around

the naked body.

Her hair are waving

flowing with

the darkness which

escapes her veins.

She struts around,

her body in rhythm

with the songs

of Nightingales.

Her beating heart

has a certain heaviness

growing nonchalantly,

but in this moment

She breathes ecstasy.

Time has slowed down,

it paused for her

holding her captive

in an inglorious bliss.

When she let go herself

cut the ropes loose

blood rushed in.

Her eyes are empty,

like the abyss, gazing

at sanity receding through

the fringes.
