What Madness

bytungtied2u©

This alcohol haze
Is not thick enough
Does not obscure the details
That flash before my eyes, insistent

In their presence
Knives in the sink
Through the heart
Such fury unleashed
Unrecognizable remains

This is personal
Impersonal
Two people in one person
One, so gentle
Adoring
The other, a beast unleashed

What flipped the switch
Between love and death
Between life together
And bloodlust

Even he could not understand
Come to terms with his madness
Deal with the damage he had done
Left himself hanging
With us
Trying to understand
