The Onset of Putrefaction

by omgitsmina   May 2, 2007

Enticing white lies paint your face with grin and a smile
A devilish smirk filled with grotesque fantasies so filthy and vile
Your face is deformed and distorted with pain ever so resplendent
From bloodied dreams and hellish nightmares defiled and transcendent

You make the shadows dance inside my weary, distraught head
Torturing my hope and faith, filling my existence with fear and dread
And just when I think the dirty deed is finished and has been done
You prove to me that the abhorrence of this violation has only just begun

Erasing my memories and replacing them with creations of your own
Leaving not one unimaginable horror or detestation to be unknown
As I watch innocent young children corrode like monstrosities in repose
I wish that I'll escape this cursed hell, a permanent yet enchanting doze

But I know that your greed and loathing nature will always keep me near
And scorn my soul with all the terrors and abysmal darkness that I fear
So I'll slowly decay and deteriorate, until my final breath does fade away
Only to rest and have peace from the evil in my mind on my final dying day . . .

    I enjoyed this poem. The vocabulary is wonderful - from what I can see, you have an amazing sense for words that jump off of the page.

    I wasn't, however, overly impressed by the flow of the poem...I AM a fan of
    trickily-flowing poems, but I found that the flow of this poem was a bit on the dragged out side. Maybe the lines were too long...I think if you cut back on the length of each line, it would allow the poem to keep it's nature, but sound more pleasing.

    But, to each their own.

    Good job!

    You have wonderful vocabulary I must say!
    It's like I've seen and heard words in your poems I don't normally hear which was really cool.
    I really enjoyed this poem because it was so dark and it wasn't the same as everything else I've been reading!
    Wonderfully written
