Velvet Astraea Dido

Oddened - Poem by Velvet Astraea Dido

writing in the dark
with my eyes wide closed
I can hear no one
and no one can hear

all the pieces of myself
I’ve been collecting
and there
in an ovary of truth
I am left alone

my guide, my shelter
is the shadow
of myself

wish I could die
wish I could kill myself
wish in a split second
where the abruptness is unknown

and I was the one in doubt
yet I was the one doubted;
no more worries
no more tragedy
no more bitterness
no more agony

and I crawl myself
from despair
no concerns
no grievances

flee to a paradise
of endless smiles
fresh air, fresh thoughts

and late into the night
I dream
nothing is true
and nothing will be.

Flush all thoughts
And from beyond
my four brick walls
I see
