SOCIOPATH

A Poem by TerryDarcy-Ryan akaSheerTerror
"

"Black sheep, cons, misfits, the ones that break all the rules. We are careers criminals, protesters, rebels with a cause. Addiction our religion. Who are we behaving for anyway? "

"


sunshine bends in vigil

seeking absolution's hell

the steeper edge of steel

balance beam of a trail

the driving wheel

is Spiked for the kill

a heart in trespass

rigged like a printing press

cut from raw intensity

a Bad seed wild and free

blood of my blood is destiny's tongue

the devil is my kin

swimming in gin

drowning inside to simply be still

sinking deeper into gradual

furious and gently we lose will

angel’s tears fill my quill

shedding the reach of a mind idle

regrettable and suicidal

a ledge’s last chance to dance

this box in need of one last nail

leaving with a tourniquet smile

defined failure

bluffing on a blind

no chance of a winner

looks like someone past redemption or a lost case
"...defined failure"
since i'm a believer, not one to term any case 'completely hopeless' i will underline the words destiny, vigil and 'one last nail'; tugged away for the dictionary

I loved the photos and the tale. Bad ladies can be tempting. The words were entertaining and worthwhile. I wanted to read and to know more. Thank you my friend for sharing the outstanding poetry.

Nicely done! Not manufactured from something false but a true life piece of work living loudly.

You capture the essence of having an angry strong inner core but feeling you don't belong in society which often leads to a mix of emotions, drink, drugs and acting out behaviour. Like the word play and word choice as they are so appropriate to the emotions.

Thank you so very much for the review.

"rigged like a printing press", what a great line to symbolize sociopathic wiring . From there the word flow and ideas really have a way of taking and capturing the reader into absolute possession.
