Bent, Spent and Madness Sent

Bent, Spent and Madness Sent

By Tony DeLorger © 2011

Bent, spent and madness sent,

I walk the halls and circumvent,

treading lightly to not disclose,

my lipstick red and pantyhose.

I bear the brunt of ill-intent,

self-loathing my way of dark descent,

into a dream I call the follies,

my life undone, my mind all sullied.

Give me bread and give me drink,

so I may ponder and life rethink,

the ways I have been ill-conceived,

my petty sins my God relieved.

No man or woman I claim to be,

a sexless mind of human grief.

Me a parody of life explored,

found wanting, restless and much ignored.

My actions trite but circumspect,

all gleaned from strife without respect.

I wallow in my filth neglect,

and life do I still aspire.

In corners hidden, in mind forbidden,

I struggle with identity ridden

with ghosts and demons fed on me,

my mind a label of fantasy.

Sleep now you fool, you unhinged pariah,

until the Good Fairy comes and her bids inspire.
