Abyss Of Manipulation! - Poem by Siddartha Montik

Fell in such deep abyss of manipulation,

every ledge found to hold on..,
Only brought boulders of pain..

Toxic showers haunting,
depths of air thinned!

every boulder escaped from..
made the abyss more deeper,

Every edge I could convince and stuck to,
Withered away under mutated manipulations,

clouds of flying bats followed Blunt pains,
Loud squeaks withered away ledges I held on to,

scores of dark meanings born in mutations,
funneling me down only to the depths of abyss

Conspicuous Abyss safely escaped any rules,
careless darkness killed all ethics!

light of hope fading between battling lies
in crowded wings of selfish motives,

only wish, still there exists death,
for, bottoms of dark do not hold any Faith!

    It's interesting how you paint a dark cave as a place which offers everything, but anything good. Interesting piece. (Report)Reply

    FINAL PART
    I have enjoyed this sheer poetry that comes from an unsatisfying mind, understandable, from the situation you are in. You get an uneasy feeling. This poem is excellently portrayed, described and created. Thank you. A TEN and much much more for the Vote

    BEGIN
    A great poem thought provoking, Food for thoughts deep seriously presented. Poets can create verses to the likings, and due to poetry we know so much of its past (the history of poetry) and in poems a poet can say all things he has on his heart with or without metaphors.

    I love how you put in the thought of the darkness at the bottom of the abyss taking all hope but bringing death as in no way to escape the terrifying despair of you're own mind... (Report)Reply

    Hello Siddartha, I think this is a good poem. It is really deep and complicated, but once understood, it is extremely insightful. I particularly like the phrase mutated manipulations as well as the two lines light of hope fading between battling lies and in crowded wings of selfish motives. A really good one. Mentions that dark side of human nature that manipulates and pushes another into the abyss and changes (mutates) over time in line with their selfish motives. Please keep this up. (Report)Reply

    No hope to survive to those who have fallen to the deep of the manipulated abyss as there is no regard for ethics. The poet's interest to probe deep on any topic is excellent. (Report)Reply
