The Reaping

This whole game has turned on a reverse mode
the world you’ve known so long is gonna explode
‘cause you’re done with your evil deeds
it does not accept an overload.

This is to all my so called ‘well-wishers’
who thought that I would not be able to survive
See I’ve got through all your ill-wishes
I’ve managed to hit it on the target after the few misses
Hear the trumpets roar and drums explode as IT IS
me and here I arrive.
So go duck and hide with your skins and bones for your life
This whole world now is mine where I’m gonna reside.
Here for you is a new exercise
You see this naked blade? Exactly, there it lies
Pick it and push it a little deep inside
Slit your throats, cut your tongues
bleed for my pet devils, feed their appetite
and wonder how I got to get them towards my side
then try to memorize
all those kicks in my butts and cuts, you gave to my guts
all your laughs and giggles, the knives and bullets
make me hear to all your fear in my ear when they tear
all your muscles down, See me frown that now you regret
Come on! How can you forget that I’m nothing but your puppet?
Where is your voodoo doll? Why don’t you –
Pick it, Pin it and Poke your fingers inside it.

This whole game has turned on a reverse mode
the world you’ve known so long is gonna explode
‘cause you’re done with your evil deeds
Nope.. It does not accept an overload.

This is nothing but your favorite game
No rules has altered, it is all the same
The hole that you dug just couldn’t have enough of my blood
it needs more, let us see how you score
So jump inside it,
make these devils applaud as they surround it
with popping eyes and tongues out, waiting to be entertained
‘cause at either side of it
They are eager to slit your every inch and suck your every bit.
No, they aint here for your tears or to see you weep
Did you forget what they say?
They always say “as you sow so you reap”
It has reached on its final stage
Brace your dirty soul tighter, it’s gonna take whole lot of courage
You’re gonna be a lesson with an exclamation
Do I need to explicitly mention or double-quote it?
that you’re gonna be famous for being the rear side or it
after I finish this bloody game that you started.

This whole game has turned on a reverse mode
the world you’ve known so long is gonna explode
‘cause you’re done with your evil deeds
And it does not accept an overload.

    This is a very interesting piece – I am feeling ‘The Hunger Games’ – mixed with the treachery of love. Creative and thought provoking!

    1. Neeraj says:

      Umm.. I love such a comparison.. Thank you so much dear!

    2. words4jp says:

      You are welcome. I am a bit late to the whole Hunger Games thing – Peyton and I just watched the DVD and are looking forward to seeing Catching Fire. He read the books, I did not, but I found it very interesting and I am most probably going to read them:)

    3. Neeraj says:

      I only saw the first movie and was quite excited before watching it.. needless to say that I loved it. Looking forward to the Catching Fire. Don’t know about the books as I dont read much 🙂

    You are one of the most versatile poets I know, Neeraj!

    1. Neeraj says:

    1. Neeraj says:

      Thank you Deb!

    This one is a bit different from your others – it rhymes in a new way! Its like a new fresh wave of words that washed over me. Brilliant!

    1. Neeraj says:

      Really? I didn’t think you would like it. Thank you that you did!

    2. Chatty Owl says:

      Why wouldn’t i like it? Im in awe to see when people try different things and succeed.

    3. Neeraj says:

      I don’t know why I thought like that but its good to see that I’m wrong at times too 😉

    4. Chatty Owl says:

      Its good to be wrong at times like these, right? ;);)

    5. Neeraj says:

      Absolutely 🙂

    Woah something completely different. I don’t like how it makes me feel. That I feel anything so strongly could only mean that it’s very good work. Thanks for sharing

    1. Neeraj says:

      I know what you mean.. it is really rare when I get these emotions.. but this one was completely based out of imagination. It is at times fun to try something different.
      Thank you for reading!!

    2. Meka says:

      Some are best experienced in the imagination anyway. Yes I enjoy trying on new ideas also so I definitely appreciate this one
