The evil in me (a retourne)

too conscious to evolve am i
under his sly, scrutinous eyes
they survive on  eternal seduction
for him no bell tolls, for he no longer dies

under his sly, scrutinous eyes
i lay defeated in unholy highs
as Satan's spider twines and swings
an evil gossamer binds my wings

they survive on eternal seduction
his proverbial snake at the alter of suffocation
his action impromptu, my wrath undefined
i lay in chaos, my ideals crucified

for him no bell tolls, for he no longer dies
for all that is evil in my dark insides
is a manifestation of him, a hungry parasite
he is in me and i am his host entwined!


P.S: This was my first attempt at a retourne, inspired by Kartz!

Kartz said...

Gothic. Riveting. Subterranean.

The said evil is part of everyone. It is the amount of influence that has the final say.

Beautifully conveyed. And I thank you for linking me to your composition.

Blogrolling you with your consents.

Bro'... High time you churned out one, too. :)

Peace. Have a wonderful weekend.

Hey Awesome.... I read this part of it again and again...

for all that is evil in my dark insides
is a manifestation of him, a hungry parasite
he is in me and i am his host entwined

Richness in the words, swept me away

for him no bell tolls, for he no longer dies <--- So damn true !! I can relate to every word of it

i lay in chaos, my ideals crucified <-- this is the best line I have heard in a long time now - Vinnie by far this is the best poetic work of yours according to me. I'm astonished , wrapped by your lines pervasively and its been almost 10 times now I have read this poem since yesterday before I could come up with the right words to comment. :)

Amazing - loved it over and over again !!!

Scattered Thoughts... said...

Kangau - give me 5 dude.. if you get to understand it.. please explain it to me as well :))
