Last day of October! Salary is in the account, I feel rich and super happy! And I am talking in my head whilst typing, trying to write something awesome about this 31st that is loved worldwide!
I can’t help but think of the Wizard of Oz, The Wicked Witch of the West was one mean lady! 😛
Carving a pumpkin, having a scary costume party or perhaps just going trick-or-treating, how I wish to do all this but all my friends are out on this weekend, and of course I am working, so no huge plans!
And why celebrate Halloween with make-up and ghost stories when the biggest horrors of adult-hood come in the form of bills! 😛
But I do have plans with myself tonight, after I am done with my work, I shall watch a nice classic movie! Perhaps a horror, to seal the deal with this amazing time of the year!
Or I could watch Psycho, the Alfred Hitchcock version. Big fan! 😀
Which brings me to my next random thought of the blog… 😛
Sometimes, I write poetry on cue. I am often given words and with some imagination, a piece of poetry is formed.
And right now, I am thinking about this really unusual word I was given once. “Psycho”
The idea was to present a huge challenge.
Huge yes, I must admit, it was also a very enjoyable one.
I managed to experiment with what I write.
There are screams inside me
As sharp as knives and bullets
Inside, I am bruised, covered in cuts
A psycho lives in my eyes
As I murder you thrice, calmly
I smile, hide, don’t speak much
As I slash your throat, slowly
In my head, you are tortured to death
My hands are glistening with your blood
I watch your eyes widen in shock
As I push a blunt knife into your guts
A psycho, they say, but I find peace
In peeling the skin off your bones
‘Psycho’, they call me, ‘take her away’
But they stop hearing my soothing tone
I kill what you live in, a vessel only
I hurt not what is inside, your soul
I torture, I dream, ‘nightmares’ they say
But unlike you, I am not cold
You hand me an insult, you live with me
You entered my mind long ago
I wasn’t a psycho on my own
You made me this, you made me so
