Give Me the Madness

“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” 

― Jack KerouacOn the Road

Let me be mad, mad with the madness of Absinthe
The wildest, most luxurious madness in the world. ~ Marie Corelli

Give me the madness
the exploration of nightmares
give them to me so I can show you
how to pull off their black masks and see them for the dreams they once were
before the darkness of fear covered them like molasses
sticking the mayfly wings together and tossing them into your
dreamscape like grenades
kernels of thoughts and guilts and avoided places of shadow
magnify when unknown
leech the murk and poison from them
unmask and let them flit away, reborn and wrapped in remnants of bright colors
give me the madness and let it write its own poetry
while I hold the pen.

About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
