HUMANS ARE NOT WEAPONS

You dig the ruins
That I have lived with over the years
The debris accumulates
And you discover a live city
Underground
Stones thrown in a wish pond
Few human sketches of charcoal
That bruised your precious ego
Like toppling a pack of cards
You destroyed a temple
You pelted the stones at me
As though I had taken to archery
Now you want to make amends?
Please do not use the same needle to stitch
The wounds you made with the needle
Humans are not weapons
All verses cannot be reversed
I am already disillusioned
with your weapons and you

  1. this is the reality of many lovers. beautiful imageries. particularly love the ‘temple’ amongst the ruins that is the past. i just love the lines “do not use the same needle to stitch/The wounds you made with the needle.” reminds me of the saying “it’s what in the head when there’s no alcohol in it that comes out when there’s alcohol in it.”
