Asylum - Poem by Binka Biswas

Walls painted agony stood beside you
Embraced by your own solitary screams
Arms twisted and turned in grotesque
Friends delequisce into bones in blinks of your passing cries
The hole where you lay in safe
The abyssmal darkness setting your hopes astray
Foreign eyes lurk inside you in scrutiny
Every move observed, every action anatomized
Undying urge to choke on your own spit
Shriveled lips, the neverending thirst
The stench of your own piss consumes
Putrifying limbs dire to be free
Rats feed on your naked flesh
Maggots burry there along in disguise
Soon their wings will flutter them away
Portraying freedom that you never will attain
Pale skin, crave for warm sunlight
The gates were closed long before
Stiffle and stir all you want
Salvation, nay
Death, nay
The distant clock coils
The shadows back again
Blighted shadows from hell
Gore clotted eyes and hands gripped in pain
Trembling heart, your every deed foreseen
The battered fingers curl as you try to conceal
Crooked smirk, the black toothed grin
His mouth twists, 'Not today my child, rest in peace'.
