Blood and Ink

Blood and Ink

A Poem by zer0
"

A dark reflection on writing and the page.

"

 

Pushing violently against the patterned walls

Of what I should have been
Spurred on by voices screaming down the crowded
Corridors of darkened thought
Until at last I concede with, a heavy breath
And softly slide the twisted clip
Of ink into my waiting gun, a child’s hand

 

Pushing violently against the ordered walls

Of what I should have felt
This ache so dulled by pretty pills of hatred
Cynical and coldly
Longing for the safety off. Now it’s chambered

Craving…

 

 

 

 

…the spaces white: a cloudy mirror. I take aim
At a faulty imitation of
My self, arms screwed into the page
Coldly kiss the silhouette of living
Death “good bye” until we kill again
“Bang”
“Bang”
“Bang”
Finally I’m heard no more.

A voice...so many voices go unheard...sad and dark piece. Outstanding work of art, my friend! Keep up the great work!

I like how you're saying "what I should have been" and "what I should have felt". People, presumably parents, have an expectation of their children. Morals are made by those who have no right to establish what is right and what is wrong.

Very nice structure: it seems as though it was written this way to show that you're thinking. Scattered thoughts and emotions.

The images are dark and tortured and tension-wound, very skillfully illustrative of one aspect of writing, and very artfully portrayed as something that would seem to be wholly disconnected--to all but writers. Good piece.

I guess there's days I've felt like that. My ancestry won't allow too many.

Beautiful .. i loved the images in it

"My self, arms screwed into the page
Coldly kiss the silhouette of living
Death "good bye" until we kill again
"Bang"
"Bang"
"Bang"
Finally I'm heard no more."
