Tower of Madness

Tower of Madness

A Poem by Laconic Meraki
"

Imprisoned in the upside down pineapple walls. A tower of Madness.Forbidden to leave. Ghosts have no physical hands for keys.

"
To the lab, To the basement.
Electroshock by machines,
Signs of rapid displacement.

No reverse to what society labels  "insanity".
Hysterical laughs and shrieks of agony.
Deafening ringing- the echos.
Fastened by iron locks -behind our doors we still sing.
Entombed in a secluded, isolated tower.
Residing for eternity.
Many leap to their death- endless hours.
You'll find me on the 5th of 16 floors.
Ghost imprisoned for infinity.
The tower stand vacant, abandoned since 1995.
But we still occupy the halls.
Confined inside the blue upside down pineapple walls
Tower of madness we are forbidden to leave.
For a ghost is unable to grab the keys.

Thank you for reading.. I understand not wanting to rate. 🙏
I love the buzzing creativity of this. I love the matter-of-fact spilling of outlandish details like it's everyday life. I wish I could think of stuff so outside-the-dots when I pour out my usual Halloween fare, same ole, same ole! I love your title & it makes me want to define my own "Tower of Madness" someday! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

A spooky write with shades of the mental hospital now abandoned. Much of what you describe seems linked to the old asylums where at least there was a separation from the staring eyes and derision of society.
