Poem by Hammad Kareem

The castle of beauty stood high with gleaming walls
And within its interior the demons call
Enter and fall
A contradiction so tall
It could fool them all

The liquid container within the vial
The vial that seems to beguile
Structures the liquid’s true style
The smile is filed

Inside the noise box i’ve lost the key
Redecorating is the only way free
This cozy little corner could help me see
The beauty in me

The dungeon felt vast with a hopeless presence
With no one but myself sitting in its essence
I thought I was alone but now I realize
This dungeon is filled with many cries
Beings like ghosts within its depths hiding
And I could perhaps see the others with hope guiding
Hope in a friend to realize soon
These dark spirits and I share the same perplexing gloom

The neon turquoise man showed me his love
His color that occupied radiating from above
His turquoise luminous and the only thing aglow
In the midnight room where only he shows
