Mind Demon

Mind Demon

A Poem by Judy Ponceby

The crystalline 
chandelier
swaying 
above my head
careens wildly 
to and fro.
 
A pinwheel of
fire
revealing
bizarre patterns.

My mind too 
twirls about
madly
seeking answers.

Looking for the key 
to shut away
this dark demon
haunting my mind 
with
its 

whispers.

I so understand the sentiment of this work. Your layout is really good as it provoked me through.
I really appreciate this piece in it's minimalistic state as I find it off-putting when there are many unnecessary connective words.
This just rolls. Love it thank you

Sweet write. I chuckled. Sounds like he wants to stay inside your mind. I suggest you keep him there.

You too, eh?
Due to your vivid portrayal, the reader is placed right in the middle of it.
Lyrical, flows nicely--very well-done.
A little unsettling, Judy.
