The single rose morphs into a forest
Crushing and strangling me
My blood fertilising the soil
Sapping me of my soul
The refreshing well engulfs me and drowns me
Stripping me of my oxygen
What once kept me safe now endangers me
Hell is on Earth.
All the demons are here.
The fire that kept me warm, made my food, gave me a reason to hope
Fire my aura
I am consumed.
A never ending statue of ash
Crumbling at the harshness of the elements
My Guardian Angel turns out to be the Grim Reaper… Someone must’ve changed their name tags
Sometimes… Most times
I think it’s God
The devil is too feeble to establish this kind of punishment
The God of Love…
Is the God of wrath
And they have cometh through the elements
The hug that once embraced me
And worshipped me
Now strikes me.
With the same force used in that of love
But shown through fear
My bones crush and deteriorate
(My dreams crush and deteriorate)
My veins explode and my heart burst
(My plans explode and burst)
It seems all of
And Olodumare are against me
