poet Sulaiman Mohd Yusof

Sulaiman Mohd Yusof

Hasta La Vista

The dawn of Tigris soaks with burnt blood
Clamps every soul
Allures every moment of grilling madness
Each dropp of boiling tears
Reflect a living hell
No more sign of hungry Vultures above

Reincarnation will haunt tormentors
You can run but the ghost of you will never rest

The death arena cries and floods your sins
The sunrise of punitive horizon cracks

Till the end of Earth
The naive color of red
Will be the effigy of premature death
When the lips of the skies
Kiss the fragile ground
Until the seeing
Hasta la vista

    The anger and the violence leap out of this poem, Sulaiman. Beautifully expressed, but please allow us a little hope!

    Love the poem i love the last part

    'When the lips of the skies
    Kiss the fragile ground
    Until the seeing
    Hasta la vista'

    That was like the icing on the cake i think i gave the poem 10/10 on the rating and since i can't i can't comment i just wanted to tell you good job on the poem and message me when you have more. And Sulaiman i know this is typical me but since you are one of my first poem hunter friends i am sure you won't mind reading one of my poems. Since it has been a while just look at some of my poems find the one or ones you like and comment. Thanks in advance

    You are very creative in your descriptions. Vivid images and the thoughts provoke lingering thoughts about what you describe. Very well done.

    it is a good poem on the devastating effects of destructive violence, if allowed unchecked to go on indiscriminately. the title seems to be an allusion to that catchy phrase john taught model t-800 101 in terminator 2, one of the films in the terminator film franchise about terminators and various other characters traveling through time to either kill or protect John Connor before the events of Judgment Day unfold. the picture of this poem is well captured.

    The sadness... the bitterness in your poem is felt, the expression of cruelty in mankind is well described by your excellent choice of poetic words, Great work!
