Kamalika Mukherjee | 5 comments Grief

The flight of yellow butterflies
From leaf to leaf
Starting for the Hebrides
Alone...alone in my grief.

Let it fall over and under
Tumbling falling in a heap
Tearing cobwebs asunder
Alone...alone in my grief.

The quick turning of pages
With only memories to keep
Of what use are our cages
Alone...alone in my grief.

Dark Things

Monsters prowl among us
In our mothers
And our fathers
Our friends
Our brothers
Our children
Our bosses
Our shrinks...

In the mirrors of.............our faces!

With horror in our eyes
We see
How we bring the monster
To the knee
We don’t know how else
To be
It is our m*****fucking
Legacy!

Monsters prowl among us
In peace
In war
In health
In sickness
In marriage
In loneliness
In death...

In the mirrors of.............our faces!

With horror in our eyes
We see
How we bring the monster
To the knee
We don’t know how else
To be
Isn’t it our m*****fucking
Legacy?

Thanks, Justin. I am an unapologetic fan of pop/rock/jazz/indie-music lyrics of modern or not-so-modern times. It probably seeps into my poems sometimes.

like tears in rain,
all is swept away.
