GATES TO INSANITY

GATES TO INSANITY

A Poem by Pestonjee_
"

IN A MENTAL ASYLUM

"


PADLOCKS PICKET PANICKED PAIN

HADES HOLLERS, HOWLS, HARRUMPHS

HYLAEUS’S HOLOCAUST, HANNIBAL’S HIDEOUS HELL

GOD'S GREMLINS, GOG MAGOG GRIMACE

BRAIN BRUTALIZES BALEFUL BRAIN

 

SURREAL SPIRITS SAUNTER SPACES SEALED

SUCCUBUS SANCTIFIED, SISYPHUSIAN STRAIN

SPITEFUL STRAITJACKETS SIPHON SPIRITS SLAIN

SATANIC STRENGTH SUCKING STRAIGHTCHAINS

 

FECAL FLESH, FEARSOME FORMALDEHYDE FUMES

ARCHFIEND’S EGGS INCUBATE INSIDIOUS

HALOTHANE HUSHED HATE HISSES

INSIDE INCUBUS EIDOLON’S EYES INSANE

 

ELECTRICALLY EVISCERATE ENTITY’S ESSENCE ETHANE

LUGUBRIOUS LIPS LOLL LULLED LISTLESS

SOUR-SPITTLED SILENCE SAVORS SUDORIC STAINS

SERRATED STRAPS SLIT SOILED SKIN

RABID RHABDOID RAMPAGE, RUINOUS RESTRAIN

 

BALAAK BALAAM BELLEROPHONE BRISEUS BRISBANE

HALLUCINATING HOWLING HECATOMB HUMANE

CALIGULA CANNIBALIZES CURSED CADAVER OF CAIN

WINDOWLESS VESTIBULES WAIL IN VAIN

What to make of this one, monsieur Pestonjee? It's very strongly written and phantasmagorical in its alliterated alienation of poetic masturbation! Unlike most other thesaurus induced vomits on the page, your poem has flow, essence and economy of words; keeping the piece nice and tight and allowing the reader to stay in the zone you intend them to be as they read. Your final two lines are an impressive way to summarise the poem, they stand out for me in regards to your hallucinatory theme. Overall, an impressive piece of poetic shock therapy for the mental mind! :)

could almost go insane reading this...the reality induced by the streaming alliteration...like that voice in the head beating like a drum...
no escape...hope the padding in the room is thick...because now that i have read this...it is time to beat it against the walls...
the words are closing in.

Whoa! This is way way spookier than my own scary poem I posted recently! I am loving it and getting spooked by it in big turns. How did you think of such evil sounding things Pestonjee? Or maybe its just the working of a truly evil mind. In which case this kitty relates a lot. Meowwww.

It's such a big paradox that in an asylum patients are treated by a well maintained course or routine just to make them fit in the already-gone-crazy world! After bleaching the brains in the asylum they're no longer suitable for any place existing.
The lines are brilliantly placed and the pattern seems difficult for me, well done!

Very nice. I liked the photos and I loved the strength of the words. I have known madness often in my life. Sometime we are more safe in madness than sanity. Outstanding poetry shared.

since English is my second language the words were hard for me to read and to understand the sentences and meanings completely, my sense felt it was forced, exactly how it feels being in a mental asylum, the intense words with the capitalization made it feels like a profound darkness, actually like hell... and this what I believe You intended it to be.

I’ll keep trying, my dear friend.
A very impressively illiterated account of what might pass through a tortured souls brain,
Much the same as I'm feeling as I watch my investments freefalling
Also an impressive collection of words that I'll have to sit down with my dictionary and decipher
Very well done
