after death consumed Her his needs festered and grew to phantasmagorical proportions …continued …

Desperate to satisfy his

need

 he stole Time

from his

landlady …

…..

he milked it from the

telephone during her

numerous but

brief,

trips

away …

…..

of course she discovered his

deception …

…..

he hid behind his deceit

but

it’s easy to see lies

when they stand

naked

in the middle of a

room …

…..

her hatred boiled

over …

it shattered his roomed

confinement …

she couldn’t stand to be

around him  any

longer…

she hated the air he

breathed … !

she gave no

succor to his

loneliness …

…..

there came a day when

she vanquished him from

the

four walls she sold

him …

…..

she banished him from her

brick Victorian space

and

when he turned his back

she

burned every vestige of his life

in the front

yard …

…..

she watched with calm detachment while

every remnant of his history

rose up in flames and black

smoke …

lost forever to the

destiny

that awaits us

all …

…..

another death had

overtaken

him …

another relocation awaited

him …

…..

Now, he lives within the

fire and the demons

he could not

fight …

inside the void of the

schism

he fell into …

…..

through windows into darkness

he seeks nothing

that can be

found …

…..

he’s a sad and lonely little boy

who’s

lost somewhere in

time …

…..

an old and toothless man

who

wanders inside

rooms

within the

fractures of his

mind …
