And then you shall die.

Embedded in the swamps of paroxysm
where I see no constant paths or pavements
chipped walls, chipped florals, chipped winter
cascading all through my pale face
in delusions, in fallacies

I cracked the seeds of opulent hypocrisy of yours once
I shall do it again,
and again,
and again and again.
Till you split like apples and dice into cubes
with a naked foot of mine
I shall pierce you,
thawing your fingernails and burying
them into a grave
empty and swollen.

And then, you shall die. (claps, claps)

P.S- I know its all-new year thing going on everywhere but for me, a new year and new day is always when I am happy. Pardon my dark write-ups or even better deal with it! Who cares, after all!

    1. So true oh God I feel so happy to be reading your words.
      Actually, there is nothing fancy about it. Fancy is only when our work changes a thing and creates something for the betterment of ourselves and others!!
      Much love to you.😊

  2. I haven’t been posting lately either for the same reason. It’s just another day for me. I don’t do the resolutions and all that. I figured I’d just wait it out, lol. But thanks for the post. It was just what I needed to read today.

  5. Chipping all the kings men saw
    identity drunk again
    johnny apple seed would have been proud

    o’ knees
    shall crash as mortar shells
    eyes rolling as death

  6. You are powerful with your pen. This is indeed fierce. 🙂 No matter if your new year is dark and unhappy I will pray that with this year coming to an end you will smile. 🙂
