ladymirth: (hamlet)

 As the deafening vacuum of air

Starves out the furious flame,
 

As the hammering sheets of rain

Subdues into mud the snake-
 
-coils of suffocating dust,
 


As the destructive wake 
 
Of an undammed flood
 

Submerges the animal detritus 
 
Out of sight and mind,
 


As the hacking cough 
 
Dislodges the phlegmy refuse

From a tortured windpipe,
 

Such relief is the stage to me

The sharp inhale of theatricality

Exhaled gustily in an abandon 

Of melodrama


Flushing out the pin-pricks,

The poisons and pollutants,

Of my malaise-riddled spirit
 

To breathe in sweet release

But for a moment.
