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.

      Chord by chord, fret by fret singing emotions of major and minors.
