With words lapping like waves on the sand I don’t understand the fire in my heart It feels like a rows of buildings collapsing from the sky Like a puzzle made by a child And here I am standing in the mist of it all Wondering where it all went wrong This urge to grip my flesh And pull it down in vain To lessen the burden of pain The shining stars turn to silver daggers Close the curtains I cannot bear it anymore This feeling that budded so softly In the pits of my womb That turned into a mad, craving monster Tearing me apart Like the fireworks That rip open the sky I am going mad in this spiral of words Whipping me back and forth But please Tell me what I did wrong I’m a sunken ship in a battle of fleets All I came for was a little bit of love My heart has sunk into the depths of darkness Enveloped by slimy, black hands Strangled by black veins cherishing my love I am devastated
“Devastation” is a deep and thought provoking poem about how as we grow up we sometimes begin to change for the worse without even realizing it. We conform to society, we let our individuality and creativity die, we forget who we are to be what everyone else wants us to be. But it destroys us on the inside, slowly drowning us in the depths of our own repression. By the time we realize this it can sometimes be too late and that is why we must consciously make a decision to be different, to stay unique, to make ourselves happy before we try to please others.
