By AJ O’Brien.

And we stand together
you and I,
climbing above the screams
of an asylum.
Our eyes, indecent shadows
dancing upon the weak.

Malice was a forethought
our hunger obscene,
pursuing wicked dreams
to an unknown place.
You and I,
we were damaged hunters.

Opening dams scarlet bright
eating forbidden fruit
we drank from fountains red.
And down this sinful road
you and I,
we did happily tread.

    1. I’m pleased you liked the poem.
      That means a lot to me.
      All is good here. Are you going to start
      posting regularly again?
      I shall visit you shortly.
      Really do hope you start writing again,
      on a regular basis.
      Hang loose dude.


  2. Beautiful development of theme with both a personal and much wider significance.

    My takeaway: In our individual pursuit of happiness, we flawed humans prey on the weak without foresight of the consequences of our selfish deeds.
