Unsub

Demonise

It violently travels down my jaw into my neck; around my lungs & straight into my heart

Piercing the tissue & expelling its misery & hatred into the chambers of hell

My organ pumps the poison through my body with precise precision

I fill with a chemical that destroys any glimmer of hope; my oncoming demise

& so I demonise

 

I tremble with adrenalin & an anger that is past boiling point

I seethe & fester with distorted images of self-inflicted abuse

I want to hurt; I want to bleed; I want to scream

I want to take this to the extreme

 

I turn from the mirror that lies

I turn from the mirror that mocks

I cancel out its taunts & jeers

I clench my fist; breaking reflective glass into a million tiny fragmented spears

 

I turn from the mirror that lies

I turn from the mirror that’s false

I cancel out its jeers & taunts

I clench my fist; punching its broken frame so it no longer humiliates & haunts

 

Laughter lines on my weary face fill with bitter tears that burn like acid

I lose the sight of beauty as an eternal darkness clouds my vision

My veins & arteries expand swelling over muscled limbs that ache with agony

My skin crawls & tightens harshly as the acid tears begin to slowly crystallise

& so I demonise

 

I shake with repulsion & an inner fury that is past boiling point

I erupt & putrefy with confused images of self-induced abuse

I want to bleed; I want to hurt; I want to scream

I want to take this to the extreme

    Ahh, not such a good hair-day then? Was the wind blowing strong, and spoiled your hair-style?! heehee.

      Orchi,

      another bad hair day I guess!

        I\'m a spoilsport in a way - ruining(?) people's poems if they are 'dark'?! heehee. Let's have a nice pot of tea and sort things out. If only it was always that easy...

        You've tasted Macdonalds coffee then!

        This is a terrific write Unsub. Maybe one of those "reflective glass into a million tiny fragmented spears" will see the light and shine it upon you.

          GF,

          I hate McDonald's coffee; nearly as bad as Lawless's coffee!

          Your poems always become mini flicks in my head as I read them. This one especially. Amazing work, Unsub.

            I loved this one.
            Dark tormenting pictures.
            There is so much in this which meant something to me but I know I have a tendency to waffle.
            I've had some dark days and it seems in life there is no easy choice. Pretense or apocalypse.

            People say I'm a drama queen.
            I think I just see and feel deeply.

            Thanks for letting me indulge my dramatic self with this one.

              sylvia,

              this one is for all the drama Queen's out there! LOL!
