In a twisted way

In a twisted way

A Poem by Shreyas Tripathy

A grieving father's words while the murderer of her daughter gets the hoop of death


You sucked the life out of her

While she reached out to me, helpless

Slowly the light in her eyes faded

As her screams engulfed me like darkness


The ground from under my feet slipped out

The world around me collapsed, turned to dust

If only I had my faithful, old, blunt blade with me

To run through your throat to cleanse its rust


But now I stand empowered, unarmed yet strong

The tears in my eyes have now dried out

To see the terror, the fear, the agony in your eyes

The very same when you made my darling scream and shout


The pain, ah, that you are about to feel now

Might somehow cancel out mine, in a twisted kinda way

But there would be no better sight than to see you helpless,

The ground beneath you gone and your lifeless body sway
