How can I breathe when the air is suffocating my silence?
I’m dancing in beast mode to free my demons of restlessness, desperation, anger, anxiety, panic, fear & similar feelings & emotions.
Turning up the volume while I dance carelessly just like the tipsy being to caress the restless eternity
Shaking my wavy long hair just like the silverbeast I breathe to free the freak in me
Twisting my body just like the scaly serpentine to sway swiftly in this slippery scene
Sensing the delusional beliefs just like the demons I breed inside of me to burn my inner skin
Fighting relentlessly just like the fluctuating flame that lit my dark nights with shadows of anxiety
Ripping the dead layers of my poisoned cells to fill the dark spaces with light full of raw intensity
Carving my rough face with my senseless fingers to project the formless edges of my blinded insanity
Filling my fountain pen with thick red to sketch my mountain of rocky emotions to draw sensitivity
—– Sharpening my Edges —–
It is a soul-searching poem that portrays how it is to be myself & how I see the things. From black & white to colors and from one dimensional to multi-dimensional. Sometimes a real free flow dance or a mental one by visualizing my lines in the form of poetry can set me free. It’s like being tipsy / high with the raw energy. I’m simply cutting myself into pieces to find inner peace, by rebuilding me.

I connect so much to this Mark Twain quote as I strongly believe that everyone has a dark side. There are a lot of quotes about the dark side of humans, and your dark side is not necessarily a bad thing..
Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.Mark Twain
