Before the first word inscribed
The pen leaked, ink spilled and smeared the leaf
moments later the page was ravaged by a capricious trance
Before my puzzled eyes feral dreams
Unspoken words, ethereal shadows transpired
Enemies clashed in silent chaos in presence of calm
When random dark stains morphed characters were born
A mélange of fantasy, rhythmic pleasure of awe
An eerie verse came to life
Riddled with daring questions, fake quotations,
Wide spaces between the words, a myriad of exclamations marks!
None ever made sense to me
Neither the haunting images nor confounding thoughts.
