Red Queens, Pink Diamonds and Lithium

Red Queens, Pink Diamonds and Lithium

A Poem by KatDarkness

An abstract poem.


And sometimes the tablets fall from their

Brown-glass jars and scatter like a

Rainfall of candy; a catalyst, provoking new bipolar twists.

My mind is full of impulsive nothings,

Threaded together by brutality.


Pink diamonds soak to crimson in the rein

Of the Red Queen; sparkle in the

Slaughterhouse palace.

My mind is a minefield.


Electric whips and razor blades,

Vermillion arches,

Bloody rainbows, lithium.

These pretty voices in my head are rich

As fool's gold and equally cold.


Fairylight mentallity; your dimming light

Flickers within the abyss of my chest.

We're both dead,

 And it's killing me.

Author's Note

Very abstract, so don't take it too literally, and starting the first line with 'and' was deliberate.

I can see you weren't lying when you said this is very abstract. I don't think I've ever really read a poem of this style before. This is really unique and interesting. Nice write and well done. :)
