LITTLE WRITINGS FROM THE LILAC WRITER: PART THREE

LITTLE WRITINGS FROM THE LILAC WRITER: PART THREE

BETTERMENT

 

It began with a

sinking feeling

stirring in a deep chasm

somewhere in the body

 

up so high

you build, buildings

just to see it crumble

to ruins

 

you rebuild, buildings

just to see it crumble

to ruins

 

even on ground

you could not shake

the feeling off from being

a trembling earthquake.

 

you tell yourself that it’s just a feeling

sinking further and further into you

it would go away without interference

but it never does.

 

ruination of one’s self

has become me.

 

betterment looks at me

dead eyed

 

while self-destruction

holds my hand

in a locked grip

 

betterment doesn’t ask me

to choose but

self destruct does.
