Atomik Fall In - Poem by Ricardo Antunes

Breathing Hurts.
It Reminds You
That You're Alive,
Still To Dreaming
Death Awoken Sleep.

Oblivion Is Thought
When All You See
Is Pain Internalized;
And What Is External?
The Release Of Pain.
As Internal
Stressors Break
Down Defence.

And In Offence,
The Offence...
Are Words
Meant To Break?
Sticks And Stones
May Break Your Bones
But Words Will
Always Break Atom.

Upon A Day
Of No Words
To Hurt Me Inside...
No Scattering Of Time
Like Ash Upon The Water.

What Scatters
Is My Mind
Made To Mind-Shatter;
Made To Pulverize;
Bone To Ash;
Flesh To Cinder;
Me To Nothing.

You Live On
As I Seek Death.
You Breathe Life
As I Forsake Kin,
Either Son Nor Daughter.
I Seek Neither...

Sticks And Stones
Break What's Internal.
Leaves Scars Upon
The External Cover.
Words Hurt More
Than Either Combined.
What's In A Word...
It Burns From The Inside.
