Wrath

Wrath short poem

Wrath hammers down

Crushing

My reflection bursts into flames

Leaping

Scorching liquid glass into my bloodstream.

Blood coagulates into mercury droplets

Reaching the floor

Rolling

Out into infinity

Space is the absence of thing-ness

into that space, where no one hears the scream

The slithering rope-like throat

Taut in it’s own powerlessness

Great Writing @Nidhi. Do start writing again, we shall await more submissions from you.

Wrath short poem
