Eden Sacked


Eden Sacked

Board up the doors because
Nothing is off-limits in the bed chamber

It's funny how we sacked Eden with our
     "Napalm olive rendition love concoction"
We overcame her with our
     "Slash and burn organic retribution endgame tactics"

We've drowned in the newness of
Our own cognitive reality

It's funny how she only gently whimpered
As we took her to the ground
In her newfound exstatic distopia
We heard her write her wisdom on the walls

"with every relationship love is just
a risk we will have to take"

Slamming Good writing! This one just gets it done, so heavy is the message and it goes quickly in, like a dagger. 10 from me.

No this poem didn't have anything to do with nails, maybe you should re-read it. LOL. What did you get from it?

Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.
