Taunting with flagrant memories.
Harsh reminders of a time long gone,
Of ambient words that smothered aspiration
Poisonous tirades that ensured a life of wanting,
Consumed with bereft portend;
And yearnings without reprieve.
The savage longing for vengeance of an unhinged complex,
Fueled by ire and regret.
Awakening to nightmares dancing in antipathy
…deranged laughter and hurled corruption,
Holding onto gossamer sanity
While Cimmerian shades roil.
