I Ceased To Care - Poem by Reginald Ruwende

Nonchalant in my purgatory
Notwithstanding my trajectory
Haunted no more by many a maudlin tale
Hounded neither by this raging gale
Pulverising solstices,
Infernos incessant,
Recipient insouciant

Cursedly blessed with a conscience that no longer coos
A heart that long ceased to throb
Haunted no more by twinges of guilt
Hounded neither by pinches of failure
Forget flairs that never flared
Whatever happened to my 'seed'
No more frequenting sanctuaries,
Lest I lie Clerics never lie

Do I seem like l care?
On the razz,
Amid the razzmatazz,
Swashbuckling in the slums
My 'Two Keys' the keys to utopias uncharted
My 'Bells' tinkling bells tickling me forevermore

I long ceased to care
Laying my soul bare
Alarmed no more by alarming death knells
Call it 'Calling it quits'
It matters not no more
Makes sense no more
Toiling in vain
Dying to live,
While living to die
