Try To Unfocus - Poem by Madrason writer

If in your quest
for recognition or success
you centre yourself to impress
Narcissus and Goldmund in one
the bloodless skin commits sin
the lonely abalone is done
the Devil might have kissed your ear
and no one trying to get near
for your beauty representing fear
with whom then can you fill your dress
without feeding your nakedness
why did you let your friend spit
on an image you started to love
trying to fly like an angel bye, bye
like a too heavy tear from above
trying to defy life's gravity
avoiding your birthright
leaving a void, leaving the night
a pale skin on pavement
a trodden lilly in New York
cold, naked and dead
'destined' and designed
for a grand finale in Red!
