Death stands above me whispering low/i know not what into my ear/of his language all i know is/ there is not a word of fear- Walter Savage Landor


applaud..yes applaud the newest kill.
it fired me up. it gave me the thrills.
i walked over to walk up to again.
i passed by a thousand times.
i hammered in the nails in the coffin and buried my past.
the rust and the worms inside the clayey me; catalyzed by the inability to hold gave way,

gave way and the ghosts returned to haunt the glee.

the damning recluse's existence marred with self-induced misery.
the virgin’s fucked up without the penetration.
raped off of the music...of the dance of the soul.
i laugh at the mirror...i laugh at god's mockery.
the beautiful skin, the smile, the eyes and nothing at all to see.




embracing the corpses of ethics i slayed all my way.
i sign parchments of confessions as i lay there dead.

  1. whatever you let go of, don't ever let go of your ethics...because it's just the ethics that make you....a set of limiting rules, as I say... :)

  2. i swore by them; now i don't swear at all;
    the light flickered for a while, it is steadfast now
    =P

    you slay ethics, there is nothing more left to you, nothing more left about you that is human enough. you'd rather lay there dead.

  3. aha! i just wanted to argue the other side....! you are wrong...a man can forge himself anew if he wants to..! :)

    forgetting what you were is the wrong bit....because by forgetting where you got from where you are, you might reach the same place again....which would mean you're only progressing...negatively! :)

    poems are like that, everybody has a different interpretation, it says different things to different people.
