WHERE ROACHES DARE

WHERE ROACHES DARE

A Poem by DIVYA
"

To You

"


A cockroach once 

Stole into my bath

I poured cleaning acid

All over its wings

Watching in bliss

As the sulphuric hell

Ate its way up

Spiracles and tubules

Corroding, burning

The cockroach danced 

In pure, excruciating agony

Before dying the death


I often wish for you

I love it Divya, it's got that sort of messed up theme that makes me want to laugh with bloodlust, though I hope it wasn't a real cockaroach, I am all for fictional gore, I personal feel ambivious about harming animals unless they died humane and it was to feed somebody, but nevermind that I loved the poem :)

Oh dear. Someone just walked over my grave.
This cleaning acid. How much do you have.
He bloody well deserves all he gets, DIVYA.

Well well well... glad I am no cockroach... I too sometimes wish harm on some even though it is not very Christian of me.

Its just human to feel this way sometimes. I know you have the kindest sweetest heart in the world.

I feel the same about your heart.
Very sick & delightfully so! *smile* Everything about this is totally unexpected & it makes the reader CRINGE to read this. We all love squishing a big ugly bug, but nobody writes it into a lyrical poem! *wink! wink!* Now I'm getting in the mood for Halloween (spooky day in October) writing! *heh! heh! heh!*

English is my third language. So I can't be anything but straight and simple in it. My poetry is clear cut and devoid of finer nuances, innuendos and drama. In other words, I am easy to read. So pleas.. more..
