A Calm State

A dream pressed on her eyes

stealing sleep

a jealousy so rancid

burnt deep incisions

a love undone killed life

an anger that she did not own

coursed through the veins


scalding the senses into  numbness

an agony pierced the  heart

as darkness danced in its depths

a restlessness

drained the brain

as she sat still by the window


spluttered in spasms

beneath the thundering calmness

brewed a storm



dizzying silences kept up the show of life
