Disclaimer: I write whatever my muse fancies, sensual, dark, humourless, humourous, satirical, scathing, medical, social, nonsensical...’ Any other ‘als’ too, you name it. I do believe this might be offensive or unpalatable to some, so please scroll by. You don’t have to like or read everything I write or post, honestly. It’s not an ‘attempt all questions exam’ and I would rather people don’t feel obliged or coerced in reading my work. Read because you want to, because it interests, amuses or invokes some reaction from you. Hell might even irk you. Haha. That’s okay too. You are entitled to have opinions. Now, the piece.( Blame Murakami, GOT, my fascination with horror and of course my crazy imagination for this...)👻😋I realised that the disclaimer was almost as long as the write up! 😳😳🙈🙈
I am a Trojan, with a mop of red hair, the colour of fire to match my heart; a black heart turned rancid due to algae that leached into my bones. Rusted and discarded with a sulky red pout. Now I walked, hair shorn and stripped down to my soul, to beg for mercy. The chains that none could see, dug into my ankles and the streets coloured a deep incarnadine. The bats had eaten my liver and the oysters had gambled my eyes. So with empty clams in my head, a chewed up organ that was meant to replenish me, I left behind a sanguine trail of ignominy.
The skies growled in fury and the oceans surged savagely. It poured till the earth submerged completely and I gulped the ocean of brine, to finally comprehend, the mercy that was decreed to never be mine.
I hence drowned in the flames of my own atonement. ©️ Faiza Khan
