"I never knew what could make you so proud // But now I see you grin in victory / A monster's deathwish a monstrosity"


Monstrosity

 

Monstrosity of a monster's deathwish

Wearing hell's halo and hovering high

Above a ruined planet's deathbed scene

Mushroom cloud like a monstrous jellyfish

Soaring like a damned angel in the sky

Too late to contemplate what might have been

But not too late to mourn what we have lost

 

Our lives were lies we could not bear the cost

Of being our own gods and holding in

These trembling hands the scales of grace and sin

We dropped them and they clattered from our hands

They shattered and I hope God understands

And who am I you ask me who am I?

Just someone who is too alive to die

 

So many times I asked you begged you why

But each time and each day all you would say

Is you knew best and I must join the rest

Just keep my eyes down follow and obey

But you have killed my world are killing me

Monstrous jellyfish of a mushroom cloud

I never knew what could make you so proud

 

But now I see you grin in victory

A monster's deathwish a monstrosity

I do not like to go into these dark places since I am already in my own. Still. Solidarity feels good to know. Thank you, Stevie. Love and peace to you. Regis
Reviewed by Felix Perry
Deep and dark Steven with a sense of foreboding doom but just a hint of hope in there for an explanation from the higher powers that be. As usual you weave your imagery in widening circles drawing your readers in. Very good ;my friend.
