KILL–LOVE

If the idea of stoning another human being to death for reasons whatsoever doesn’t make you flinch, then you, my dear, are not normal.

You should be stoned.

By your own

Perhaps your mother

With the same LOVE

PAIN

And MIGHT

With which she brought you into this [wicked] world.

Let her snuff the life out of you with every fibre of her being – the same which you held on to, for dear life.

And while you watch every lone strand of your miserable life leave you, reach out for her loving arms – the same arms that rocked your cradle.

Search her eyes for her undying love – that which she has always protected you with. That which is not held on to by human vows or promises. That which Mother Nature gave her from the moment your heart took its first beat.

Let her look back into your eyes and watch your heart take its last beat.

Let her watch as every drop of your miserable life falls back to earth.

And when she is done, let her hold your battered body to her bosom.

Let her look up to the skies, and in her endless pain, let her smile to the heavens for taking you away.

Above all, for the rest of her life, let her be thankful that you have been forgotten…

Because YOU, my dear, were NEVER normal.

  2. Poetry is the most artistic of literature, most written because lazy writers see it as the easiest, sigh. Little read.

    This is a deep one, Leslie

  3. Kilo le to be?!

  4. This is the best things I’ve read on a Nigerian blog for ages. I’m not really a fan of prose poetry but this is in a class of its own and very relatable. The details leave you trembling and pondering the possibility of you being the writer’s target.
    Well done.

  5. I’m a bit thrown off by the title though.

    This is apt!
    Precise
    Understandably horrific.
    But a wonderful read.

  7. I love this. ☺☺☺☺

  8. I do not flinch at the sight of blood!
    I run instead in search of it.
    And while you flee at the sight of crimson floods,
    Therein I stoically dwell.

    So hate me, berate me, call me less than human.
    I revel in your fear ’cause I taste it from afar.
    I’ll never be lumped with lily-livered humans
    Because Love made me what I am – A Monster!

  9. Thank you very much guys. When I wrote this, there was so much emotion raging inside of me. Only a few could understand. Walter did. He still does. There’s really not many people who can connect. It’s totally understandable.

    Thank you for sharing this Walter. I really appreciate it 🙂
