Mind Of A Madman - Poem by Charles R. Brunty

Welcome to my world
It's a beautiful world
Nice and dark
Skies of blood
And seas of pain
A night club playground
The beast jerks at the chains
That keep it at bay
A child, curled in a corner
Cries her fears in silence
A dark visage stands
And observes
I like to sit
On the skeleton towers
And watch the shadows play
An unseen moon smiles
As the obscuring clouds
Issue an acid blessing
On a lonely soul
