Murder Of Sentiments


For an attempt to begin such verse
I must abstain from any meter.
There has also been a murder of rhythm,
Amongst the other sentiments.

I declare it to be
A delusional tragedy
Sung infused with disgust
And the immortal grief.

They rejoice their happy songs
When I still ask back my sanity.

As I look at my unlucky stars
The dimmest in the skies lying far
Look within me now
And see how empty people are!

How people are who feed on themselves
How are those who have lost their senses
Whose dreams demise
Like the summer morning dew
And whose desires are trampled
In demonic trenches.

I am amongst those who pray in the graveyard
I am the one who breathes in death
I drown away in the river of my pain
To slaughter my sentiments again.

Dying is easy for the courageous
So I let my sentiments die.
I have forgot what is normality
And also forgot what was my.

I have escaped from the war
And I am out of the line
Torn between two worlds
Real, and the divine.

I see flesh, I see blood
Of my sentiments and my own
Flowing from far forgone.

Revenge is uninvited
But together we shall be.
I murder my sentiments
And they, murder me.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
