rotting slowly

[What is this that i feel?
and how do i know that it will never heal?
I’ve never talked about it – never!
but what is in it that i can never conceal?]

My crime has brought me this punishment
and i lie here, waiting for more
I look forward
towards my destiny
Trying hard to find the point,
where end awaits me.
I can take it no more –
this endless agony.
Oh! please now…
cleanse me!

wash me clean of these stains
or burn me down to ashes!

i’m left with nothing but
these insects of hatred and pain
and now, i’m rotting within
This rain of sorrows –
they just help my wounds grow
i’m starting to stink now…
and i’m rotting slowly
here i’m on my knees now!
and here i bow!!

Oh please! wash me clean
or burn me down to ashes!

  1. Hey I discovered a tremendous place .
    I love your poetry –
    everything about it –
    the dark , the bright ,
    love , hatred , angst ,
    pain ……
    is speaking ,
    is speaking to me.

  2. I love the double meaning of here I’m on my knees now and here I bow. Submission, defeat, forgiveness, resignation…so many emotions in two incredible lines. Very nice.
