The Dance


I have a dress the same color as angels flapping their feathery wings. One yesterday, I slid myself into it and watched as it became my skin. I was too white the sun shied away and never shone when I was there. But if you looked too closely, you would see the devil woven into my fabric.
I twirl in the sand. Eve and Lilith, like the ebb and tide, unravel my labyrinthine heart , then rise and fall into it. I am fading into a mirage. Have I ever been real?
The words frantically dance as they tear my brain apart. The shreds fall out of the window. I jump to collect them and I am all broken. I glue my body together and search for them. I press myself into a insanity and it pushes me into ecstasy and they both throw me, on the shores of nothingness. I remember. My brain. I lost it somewhere along the way. The shreds repulse and break my skull. Craziness is inevitable.
Become me again and I’ll pretend nothing ever happened.

  2. It sounds to me like you have just described a moment of insanity & I think this is something that even the best of us will experience from time to time in life. We are the only species on earth that can torture ourselves with our thoughts, tearing ourselves apart & have the ability to punish ourselves like we do. Very well written again Maha!!

  7. We enable ourselves with unraveling thoughts and fall into the depths of earths disasters...This is when we pick up the broken pieces and move on, growing each day...This is so beautifully written...And this feeling is so well known in my heart...

    Is it not OK to be a evil angel?
    My vices will not kill me afterall(They might lead into circumstances though)

  14. The way you weaved biblical references with emotion and dancing and the dress... wow this was amazing. What pieces make us and how can we shed what is not ours to become whole?
