                   Asylum Rhapsody

as he stands
in his room
of his inferno,
his mind spins inward.
stands with him
and wanders without sound,
bruising his eardrums
with deafening rhythms
of  solitude and suffering.

colors form
    upon his eyes,
dazzling with sensations
    in his heart.
moving patterns
race around
    the wilderness
of his head,
     confused recollections
from their trenches.
away they fly
scampering in the cloud
twisting through
the wrought-iron bars,
caressing the fragments
from the convulsive arrangement
        that protect him.
so when
        the crazy spindles break
he unfastens rage
from his paint,
but it sticks on
         with free will,
dancing in the confusion
and frolicking
on the fatalities
of his synaptic battles.

so he goes back to the window alone
       and paints
the starry night.

               this is realistic version (digital) of Van Gogh's "Starry Night"

So many things happen before a masterpiece gets created :)
Nicely expressed.

"frolicking on the fatalities of his synaptic battles"--I cannot tell you how much I adore this phrasing. Absolutely stellar. As is the entire piece.

I cannot imagine being inside the head of an asylum seeker, but as you have done, I should. Very uncomfortable.

A wild chaos of thoughts waiting to pour throuh the brush and be spread on the canvas. Beautiful.
