Peter Madden Poems
A Night In A Haunted House
I sit alone in the dark... the clock ticking behind me upon the wall... its sound breaking the suffocating silence only just... like the beating of times relentless heart..
Fallen kingdom, fallen realm torn apart by pointless hate, the mad and corrupt at the helm, morals in tatters, lying in state,
The Grandfather Clock
Tick...tock... a sound like the endless beating of a heart
Child of Sunlight daughter of the falling rain Rainbow is born
I Hear The Screams
I tell you i hear the screams, echoing silently throughout my mind, i plead for you to hear their words, as they whisper in my ear,
The pain i feel from my wounds hurts not, when compared to the pain in my soul... To be cast from my father, my creator, my reason to be... To be cast down amoungst the savages who doubt his very existance..
The Devil And God Went Walking
The devil and god went walking one fine summers day... a picnic they brought... so they could stop upon their way...
I know that all that has gone before.... made me who i am today.. but i ask myself a simple truth... can i change? ...
I'm surrounded by ghosts... that no one else but i can see, restless spirits haunting my twilight world, the tormenting echos of my past...
I Want To Go Where Dragons Fly
I want to go where dragons fly, where the unicorns run free, to follow the griffins in the sky, all the way down the the sea,
The Waiting Room
i sit in the waiting room... my train is late and night is falling... and darkness covers the world outside.. reflections of the room fill the window panes...
A Pain Like Fire
a pain like a fire in my blood... itching and burning me within.. consuming all rational thought... till i weaken to the sin...
i walk the streets... my face a parody of normality.. the reality is im a prisoner... screaming within this tainted shell...
Do You See Them?
they sit on street corners.. in the alleys and the gutters... hiding in plain sight... from an uncaring world..
i walk the streets...
my face a parody of normality..
the reality is im a prisoner...
screaming within this tainted shell...
restrained by my relentless fears..
that twist my perceptions...
every person i see is not themselves...
but instead appear to me as monsters..
