And then my soul saw you and it kind of went "Oh there you are. I've been looking for you.”

Killing the Immortal

rope_ra_vice
Caged bird
I will cut your feathers
And let you free, forever.
Old prisoner
I will slay your throat
And let you escape from here.
Little kid
Hand me your kite
And play with rifles instead.
Solitary girl
Sing me songs of mourn
For I will kill your mother now.
White teddy
Close your eyes tight
As I rip off your cotton bod.
Brave sailor
Laugh and rejoice
Until I draw a hole in your boat.
Wounded warrior
Count your last breaths
As I finally shoot this arrow.
Sweet baby
Smile once more, and last
As I snatch you away and throw.

Cut my feathers and I shall bleed
I won’t fly but the blood shall flow
And sow the seeds of a resilience new.

Slay my throat and I shall cry
I won’t say but I shall be heard
And a voice of courage shall rise.

Give me the rifle and I shall fire
I won’t aim but I shall shoot
And the bullet shall hit you instead.

Kill my mother and I shall weep
I won’t sing but tears shall flow
And rocks shall melt, and so shall you.

Rip me off and I shall wait
I won’t see but the cotton shall be free
And be woven again to form your shroud.

Draw a hole and the boat shall sink
I won’t cry but million would do
And tears of blood shall flood your dreams.

Shoot the arrow and I shall die
I won’t count but breath shall be gone
And another shall point to you.

Throw me away and I shall sleep
I won’t smile but doomsday would
And haunt till the end of your life.

  7. Maria…I have been reading your writings lately aur her new writing perhnay k baad I think how far this little girl has to go on the road to maturity in writing and wonderful-ness ! Trust me…you have improved a LOT ! This write-up of your’s was equally amazing…..Love your ideas, how you have gathered the cruelness and cold facts of the world in a magical way…. and Arindam, as always has given this poem a completeness…..In his unique style he has injected positiveness and hope in it. Love his combined effort of both of you….. Best of luck :) Love.
