Schizophrenic Waking - Poem by Thomas Dorman

Waking up after over half a day -
Having been to father's,
Confession box'd my sins in
& saw through the grate.
Deception,
Not a man, but a mere boy
Getting his lusty kicks,
A fledgling stallion trying his hand.

I remanded this perversity,
All dressed in obsequiousy,
Begging for his life, he
Abandoned his evidence.
Stepped I
Into the golden loom of morn'
Greeting smiles from the girl
With woven hair, &
We shared a smoke.

But I awoke,
Spacious area, (suspicious aura)
empty grey matter,
questionable proportionate reality;
I stumbled,
At snail's pace, downstairs
And fromward my eyes met another:
A deep burnished, shimmering lime
Stone stare, petrifying,
Slanted brows into famished malevolance.
I smiled a junkie smile,
A hopeless grin that says it all.
And sat down
And sparked up.
