The pain has now lessened.
And the fear has been driven away.
The tears have been wiped clean and
The harsh words sink in deep.
Deep into the blood that now flows clean.
From the gashes of blades meticulously stricken.
Not skin deep as the winds around change.
And rages into a tempest of unfathomable proportions.
The tides of sanity are now being driven backwards
As the moon goes farther away
And its light like a whip to the bone.
The flesh is singed beyond repair
As the needle is driven into the eye.
The cords around the throat tighten
And the blade is cleaned to strike.
And a smile is all that is left.

Happily departed
The lobotomy of life
Has finally cured
The insane asylum of my mind.
And all that’s left now
Is to move towards nothing.

Woah, freaky picture :O
Dark, gory, yet beautifully written :)

Miss D said...

And just like,
There was peace. :)

No sarcastic smiles, no crimson hues,
No bloodbath, no lobotomy,
Just a couple stupidly in love,
And laughing away in bliss.


D2 said...

@Ruhani : Thanks a lot. :)
And I like gory stuff. :P

D2 said...

@Enchanta :
After the darkest night of the tempest,
The sun must awaken in the morn.
And the droopy eyes must open anew.
The smiles must be conjured again.

Isn't that obvious? :P :D

@Lioness : Yes, sometimes it does. Sometimes it draws nearer. It has an elliptical orbit. But don't mind me. I can say anything. haha

D2 said...

@Lioness : Oh I don't mind at all. But what about the Earth? What does your head revolve around all the time?
