Description: For those who are offended by the language: you were warned...
Depending on what you read and when and of course how, there are several meanings, and also several people to whom this is addressed. Actually, there are meant to be several narrators; I tried to get inside a few other people's heads, so to speak, when writing this.
It's not so much poetry as a cipher? I don't know.
The formatting wouldn't work, so take note of punctuation, capitalization, and quotation marks...
I know I deserve the shit I get
But you know you deserve the shit you give
Karma from Chronos and anger from ether
Said the mirror to the gazer:
"You're nothing but me | em tub gnithon er'uoY
Nothing on this earth matters that the eye can't see!"
Liar liar, serpentongue-ram the glass until it's numb
Scratch the surface, see the screams
But you'll only near the heart of it in your dreams
All this, all the
We've recalled while
It all, you know that
I showed you the throne, just know not to bow
Asriel brings everyone in with chains
Go when it's time or face prisoner's blames
I am not your mistake...
I am not your "fuck" up
I am not "you"
And I know you know, too.
I know in my core I'm letting you down
And the devils that dance have hell to pay
I dice with dead men's bones; with baby's teeth I won't play
She shows you you're wrong; you say she proved you right
That the omniscient eye saw her setting it right
Go worship your idols and kill for the queen
The corpse you're cheering isn't me
And the lost-lorn you'll mourn isn't: the blind have yet to see.
Wow. This is awesome. I'm in shock of how much awesomeness is in this poem. I love the changing views, and the [intensity? Bare truth, rather than pretty, polite words?] that your use of the curse words shows. When I'm done being in shock, i'll break it down and analize it.
Thanks for the love on my page! I'm so happy you like my stuff so much1 But I think I have my computer fixed so I can get on ES, it will just be REALLLLLLLYYYY slow. lol.
Anyway, as always, I love your work, and this one goes on my fave list.
