Dreams And Nightmares (Imperfect Haikus - 7) - Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana


Unleashing surrealism
From her entrapment
Pandora’s Box


Unheralded scenery
Marbles lost to the transience
Of schizophrenia


A dream of solitude
Galloping on a chess board
A knight mare


Where memories are kept
A mausoleum to times of mirth
Strains of nostalgia


In a psychedelic psyche
Are fragments of madness
Opium wars of a bipolar mind


Promiscuous creature
Untamed in her pedigree
Summoning the unpardonable


What is incinerated by a flame
Rests in fragments of embers
Of amnesia
