// daymare //
half-burnt pages under the bed
draped a robe stained in red
looked into those diabolic eyes
subdued an abyss of forlorn cries.
a masquerade of smiles perish
tears flood the gloomy debris
a numbness spread like wildfire
raging felicity on the great pyre.
veins and arteries turned pale
manoeuvring an escapade tale
a battle armour turned to dust
covered the lungs and left to rust.
a freefall wreaked on serenity
bestowing death upon a destiny
shards of chaos punctured a heart
a delirium prudently crafted like art.
