Sophisticated Cruelty

– Jyotsha Kumar

Sophisticated cruelty
Brandished vanity
Nightmares now my true reality.
Preposterous, this proposition
Oh! What a bleak view this is, a tarnished utopia
Another soul devoured, what blasphemy!
Such blighted existence, a withering travesty
Nightmares now my true reality.
Hands joined, prayers of contrition
Kneeling for forgiveness, freedom from this dystopia
Hiding behind miles of scarred skin, still an inch from insanity
An inconsequential disposition, just a broken hearts rhapsody
Nightmares are now my true reality.

  1. Brilliant stuff. Moves from ‘tarnished utopia’ to a ‘dystopia’ at breathtaking speed.
