National Poetry Month: day 12/poem 12


Today's never-before-seen poem was written post-college, pre-LA during one of my many bouts of insomnia.

Nocturnal Madness

mind intoxicating
melt melt meld
into dry beats
like heaven
discourse
disjointed
notes high
don’t
don’t
don’t
remember sadness
grief loss
fall
tumbling
slowly
through space
nothing
mind at ease
beauty peace

and I know
I remember
now
all that I wanted
all that I ever had
traveling backward
through time
like all
this is life
traveling backward
through time
falling towards death
landing on platforms
of memory

I know love
