Leaking Pen

(Wellington, New Zealand)

Thus I became a Madman


From the mind
Of a madman
I write poetry
I am stormy
Northern Winds
That pulls down
The mightiest
Oak tree
I am fires
That burn
And scorch
The rain forest
Suffocating
The earth’s lungs
I am the hand
That stretches wide open
The ozone hole
Genetically
Modifying
Human cells
Uncontrollable
Appetites
To death itself
I am hate
Unconstrained
Chernobyl’s
Fukushima Daiichi’s
Nuclear blasts
Pride in action
I am the devil
That keeps
You awake at night
For I stole
Your true love
The love
Of your life
With my wit
And lusty ways
Then moved on
To the next
Unsuspected
Victim
I am who
I am
For I cursed
The breath
Of life
The moment
I lost
My true love
To another
Devil Who
I am now
-Incarnate -
My will to
Out do
And surpass
All deeds
To depravity
And thus
I am
The madman
Who stole
The Sun
Buried it
In the graveyard
Of my soul
And extinguished
All living lights!
Thus I became a madman

That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
