I Wrote A Religion Out Of Pain

Updated: Jul 2, 2021


My heart is punctured that I don't feel anything anymore,

My lungs are panting with the inability to breathe anymore,

My body is anesthetized to not move again,

My soul is chagrined to release carcasses of the past.

The room smells with grief,

The food gives a woeful taste,

The surroundings are filled with wails and mourns,

But I don't lament anymore.

It looks like my tear glands have been ripped off!

The songs of happiness is just fleeting,

Dreams have ran away from me.

I feel perplexed yet I am unable to rumble.

Life seems to shrink with the emptying milkshakes,

Head is filled with the mayhem of thoughts,

There is an avalanche of bedlam within me,

I feel like cursing everyone around.

Death isn't pleasing either,

The thought of merging into the five elements sends tremors inside,

The thought of departing from your hard earned life drowns me in waves,

I have lost many relations to the onset of time,

And there is no time to get elegiac.


Of what use is all this?

When poetry has given upon me,

I fractured my bones to write poems,

To only get spited by them.

I was always a crutch for survivors,

But I don't even have one wheelchair.

The nib of my pen pens satires against the world,

I cannot fill anymore empty pages with poetic designs,

In the midst of hating my own poems,

I wrote a Religion out of pain,

Established a new Jerusalem with hopes of a better Morrow,

And I have now chopped off my fingers to lay its foundation.
