To The Fallout - Poem by Rizwan Saleem

To the fallout

I see in the distance skies
How lightning crashes
Illuminates this pitch black night
I choose to burn all I ever loved
Then burn the ashes
Erase every word of endearment
Blinded by salted water
I give release to all memories
That return to my eyes in flashes
Doubtful if I can find
An anecdote to what you’ve left behind
Drops of that sweet nectar I aroused from you
That flowed from your veins to mine
Like turbulent seas
Now I ail with this poison
A brew concocted just for me
Destitute, faithless, fallen
Completely incomplete
Yet felled by this weakness that makes me pray for your pity
How your arrogance grows
As every hour goes
You wring my own tears
On these seeds of loneliness you have sown
I plot my revenge
Or some vestige of retribution
My plans flutter to my feet
Like feathers of fallen angels
I see now the looming clouds of storm
Gales that howl and sway
Bring messengers of the coming regime
That shall rule my remaining days
In these searing embers
I swear to hide
All the torment that I suffer inside
But stuck in between the devil and the deep blue sea
How I would spend this world’s weight in gold
Only to know for the hundredth last time
If you still think of me.
