Friday Word..

It is "STEP" as Mona, says...
Please feel free to use it in your blog post tomorrow, in whatever fashionable shoe style you choose…story, poem, photo, drunk narrative, 12-step program of your very own design…. You may use it as a noun, verb, adjective…
That 12 step program sounds might appealing to me. I got nothing as of now.. except for the stuff below..

Step Into Nothingness

He did not want to feel a thing

The weight of being a caring, loving human

Too much to bear.. sapping him slowly but surely

The desire to love and be loved, to hold and be held

To be the object of and the end of someone’s desire

A longing unfulfilled... is what sent him wandering the streets

No cures to crush his demons did he seek

To unleash the beast in him upon himself he did

To tear him apart to shreds

Flesh and bone torn asunder

Needle sliding gently

Into veins black with blood

Thumb pushing down on the plunger

Praying for deliverance

Step into nothingness

The voices in his head cried

As a void closed in

Fuck Ya!.. He whispered

A dying smile on his lips

Reflecting the finality of it all.

Maggie said...

So dark. Your poetry reveals a side of you we rarely see.

meno said...

Wow, where did that come from? Nice job.

Asha said...

Thought you are all happy after all that Chianti!!

I was just reading about a Turkish dish which I am going to make for Meeta.Google this "Imam Bayildi".I was laughing so much ,may be you will too.Have a great weekend bhai!:))

Sanjay said...


@Maggie.. Yes maybe it does, some parts of me are best expressed differently?

@Meno..Thanks Comes from a place I sometimes don't know exists?

@Asha.. Light and dark and everything in between. :). The Chianti did not last for long, lol. Also who says I am unhappy? :)
I have had Imam Bayildi, but I did google the name and it is funny. Enjoy your weekend too.. Thanks

patches said...

Your poetry is so passionate and soulful.

Lotus Reads said...

Sanjay, you are a man of many moods and I love how you express that through your poetry. This was definitely dark but beautifully written nevertheless.

Fuzzylogic said...

Sanjay said...

@Patches..Thank you.

@Fuzzylogic.. I usually go with whatever my mind comes up with. Not quite sure how that works. You have a great weekend too.

Sanjay said...

@Lotus..Thank you for your kind words. :-)

Yes I may be a man of many moods, but do you think there is a darker edge to the poems? It's not like I feel any different, maybe I just feel its harder to express darker feelings in words? Or I am just confused. :)

Id it is said...

Some strong images there; violent and vengeful even, reeking restive rumblings, dark undercurrents seeking an out.

Anali said...

Wow, that is some serious stuff. Very poignant and sad, but beautiful.

Sai said...
