In the Mind of Crazy Rhyme

Soft, the silence screaming
names she’s standing, sighing

Soft, the sickness of the
suffocation singling

Soft, the sex they had be-
fore the space between them

‘Fore, the years of silence

‘Fore, the mental sickness

-Can’t he hear her scream?-

Loud, the longing yearning
pushing pulling prompting

Loud, the laughing demon
in her head is lying

Loud, the lightning-flashes,
loading mem’ries of him

List-ing years-of-longing

List-ing dreaming-lyings

-Can’t he see her yearn?-

Fly, now, fleeting fledgling
first to reach the window

Fly, toward feet-led floating
to the hallway’s ending

Fly now, and be free

-Can’t he see she’s free?-
