how I learned to hold my breath

when dictatorship
is left up to stupidity
the falsest of patterns
comes to rape me

when passion and desire
wakes up in a rainfog
and insanity
with its complete register
delivers twofaced offers

without a voice
i crumble
straight to boredom
for a while

when the frost sinks in
when presence of mind
undividedly releases itself
I abandon all reason

with contempt I decay
devote myself treacherously
and regret every breath

dark piece of poetry - there are times that engulf us, hard to escape them. but there is beauty too inside.

I likes this poem very much, especially the last 4 rows. The content of the stupid human behaviour of sticking to routines even if it's bad is very well displayed here.

Great poem, especially the contant flow of the text
