Jolt. Paranoia. Gangrene. - Poem by Mubeen Sadhika

twitching of the face started
recently. It's a fit. The shudder.
convulsing with a quiver.
The jerk continued with a tremor.
contractions and relaxations or
it goes into spasm over and over.

creeping with fear in horror
worried about panic dismay.
Alarming anxiety trepidates
in memory. It's obsession. Terror.
Always mistrust and suspicion.
Hallucinations to kill the unknown.

complete decay from cerebral injury.
Amputations will leave partial
centre of brain. The magnetic
hold will go unrestrained.
erosion may not be controlled.
Total dysfunction outsized.

    I appreciate the texture of the words in the first stanza. You depict the patient's situation well. The almost awkard words and rhythms are suitable here. (Report)Reply

    In the jolt part, mastery of the poetess marked->twitch..>shudder…>convulse…>quiver…..jerk…>tremor…>contraction used to paint a certain mental state! ! !

    Let me see with the glass
    of genderless binary opposition
    upon this poem.
    what I see? In an outside! off vs on!
    ‘Total dysfunction outsized’?
    Why for and why not for?
    Behind this words,
    why not a beautiful lady smile?
    Is there a ‘cause and effect’ linked?
    How far and how much it covers?
    Or spreading alike the universes
    since the big bang! Ancestral touch? why?
    Questions are unanswered remain….

    On the other hand, signifiers/descriptors are signifying the fact that in the bio world it is a real picture!

    OK, what are you talking about? Where is the rest of the story? A write needs 3 parts, begining, middle and end. Which one is this? You need DID, Deeper In Detail. You leave too much out allowing the reader to draw a wrong conclusion.
    This isn't a mystery poem but you have written it as such. Re-do-it! Elaborate, ok?
