Asylum Daydream - Poem by Lon Bruso

Somnambulistic gargoyles leer
from perches of despair
atop an ancient edifice of stone
dead eyes staring vacantly
into fetid air
patiently awaiting things unknown

Twisted clouds traverse the sky
as if in search of prey
morphing into forms no eye should see
evil voices in the breeze
whisper all the day
mouthing words unfit for sanity

Bat-winged beings scratch and claw
at fleeing forms below
feasting on the flesh they tear away
then fly off to copulate
with faceless things that glow
in caverns hidden from the light of day

Thus it goes upon a world
beyond the reach of sin
a world no mortal man would dare conceive
for the fear of madness
that would surely enter in
and compromise his means to disbelieve
