The Mind

The Mind

A Poem by Stefano Ianiro

Cognition darkens with every note,

A screech, a scream, a souls afloat,

Lost memories take air from your throat,

A mind’s your thoughts a life has wrote.

You think.

You breathe.

You understand.

A maze of confusion for you to withstand.


My nerves engage in conversation. 

I sit.

I kill;

Imagination.

I ache and pain; avoid creation,

Create a thought from pure frustration,

Repress the mess of my temptation,

These acts are caused by limitation.


Outside the box, a dream has died.

A vision.

A scare.

A twist of the knife.

For what you’ve seen has been altered inside.


A horror.

A game.

A terrible space.


My darling, 

The mind;

Is a dangerous place.

I am oft intrigued by the true power and danger a single mind can possess. This was a very thought provoking poem with a nice rhyme scheme. I enjoyed it thoroughly.

A vision.

A twist of the knife.
For what you've seen has been altered inside."
A good poem indeed...:)

Darkish & foreboding, an excellent sustained read. Thanks for sharing.

Love how you ended the poem, "the mind is a dangerous place", it can be very dark and sinister, anyway this poem offers that background of darkness with the feeling of sadness and anger...love it, great job
