Seas Of Insanity pt 1

Faintly nights
sail me out to bad seas

where phantom mermaids
sprout silver razor fangs,

the evil legion
of
uncertainty.

They breed for war company,
not companionship.

My body floats through a
blurry
night vision,

disarranged,

my color changes to corrupt
as
salty thin waves shift
to fit
a temporal sea.

These are MY waters!
Taken by vicious fish women
who
slant
unstable nets
to the West way I wander in

my abducted waters arrest me
in mesh tangles and drag me
down,
down deep,
to the bottom of the bad sea.

It is here where I find them,
or they find me,

sick ghostly’s with their guns
and their sabres,
with their sick hats and masks.

I find them in mirrors, metal trays,
window glass, silver spoons,
lurking as gauzy shadows

at the bottom of the mad
seas,
bad seas,

They are women,
stringers
and
scribblers,

jumping from balconies,
blasting out their brains,
taking madness away from themselves and
handing it back to me,

in fins
and ferocious teeth that finally drag me
away from the mad, bad seas

away from uncertainty,
from faintly nights

to meet
the first blush of the sky
over seas of insanity.

      1. Science has ruined my brain Colin… let’s ask the one who is imaginative … 😛
        PS: I have a very different philosophy about this which you might find weird.. so let’s give it a rest?

  1. Whoa! I don’t think I can even find the deep places in my soul from which you write. My ramblings must appear superficial to you. Your words have a tail of fire behind them, like little comets, zinging the page.

  2. These stanzas will stick with me –

    I find them in mirrors, metal trays,
    window glass, silver spoons,
    lurking as gauzy shadows

    at the bottom of the mad
    seas,
    bad seas,

    They are women,
    stringers
    and
    scribblers,
