Voices

Voices

A Poem by Sean Eddingfield
"

Posession and unrest...

"

Blood and tears

spit and bile...

that I should walk this hellish mile.

Demons and angels

known and not

gather here and thicken the plot.

Crowded and noisy

cluttered and dead

these voices gather inside my head.

Screaming, crying, moaning, cursing,

scratching, biting, lying, searching,

laughing, loving, whispering, dying,

killing, retching, crawling, flying,

yelling, mumbling, spitting, fuming,

knowing, guessing, telling, assuming,

commanding, fortelling, swearing, concealing,

touching, numbing, compelling, feeling.

All this they do...

all this and more.

It's why I writhe here on the floor.

No silence here

inside my head,

no rest when it is time for bed.

One screams yes.

One whispers no.

One eats fire

and spits out snow.

One says kill

thru gritted teeth.

One says hush

from far beneath.

One says hate

and one says death

into my nostrils

sour breath.

They talk so loud

and all together,

screaming in pain

moaning with pleasure.

Until it all becomes a roar...

I don't think I can take much more.

So take me away

and drug my brain

and label me indeed insane.

A herd of swine

could not contain

their number swells inside my brain.

Where is my Christ

to ask my name?

Ask me again,

I'll tell you the same...

silver for dime

and copper for penny...

Call me Legion

for we are many.

That was great. So much raw emotion and insanity. Everything about it is perfect: the feeling, tone, and overall grit of this poem. God, I love it.

I like! You (if you haven't already) need to read "Legion's Legacy: Tales of the Damned". I think it is on my last or next to last page. Anyway, this is perfect. Reminds me of home. Kudos.
