Truth

Wrench it from its snug home
Beat it, till it's bruised and battered
Hack at it, till some agree
Tear it to shreds, till some are flattered.
Colour it, colour it,
Till you disfigure it,
Stripe it with hideous streaks,
Blotch it with garish patches,
Dip it into pools of blood,
Crown it as the king of freaks,
Sprinkle it with stinging spices,
Light it with dirty matches.
Swallow it, swallow it,
Till you believe it,
As it's shoved down your throats
You make no effort to resist.
Chew on it, savour it,
Convince yourself it's what you want,
Let it run freely through your veins,
Parade about in a shroud of mist.
Let the flames flicker.
Simper and snicker,
Snicker and simper,
Smile as some whimper.
Bow when they please you,
But when they tease you,
Who will you run to?
What will release you?

you're the ONLY person who can make a compliment sound like an insult.

VelocityGirl (tm) said...

What were you thinking when you wrote it? It feels like if Eddie Vedder's voice was a blogpost, this could be it.
Yes, yes, I know.

Death On Two Legs said...

THANK YOU Sahana... coming from you, that is a huge compliment!!

No, seriously, this post is sort of yearning, sort of poignant with an undercurrent of red-hot anger waiting to burst through, kind of like Mr.Vedder delectable vocals.
KIND OF. Not quite there yet, Shukto.

DUH

Vikrant said...

I like it. I like it a lot.

Oh, and my last blog's gone and I've forgotten what your comment was. All I remember is that it was concerning something I feel very strongly about. Floyd, I think.

Vikrant said...

i wonder what that genius comment was all about. lol. as in the one you gave me, not the shit mihir says all the time.

Death On Two Legs said...

Yeah, is this about veritaserum?

Death On Two Legs said...

I'm NOT talking about veritaserum :)
I'm talking about truth that gets disfigured

29A said...

Yes well, we realized that, but it was too good an oppurtunity to pass up :)

Death On Two Legs said...

I sort of thought you realised, but after two questions on veritaserum, I got a teeny bit worried

Vikrant said...

One fine day when the lunatics where on the grass,they sat together and sketched like happy kids. They put together these sketches using whatever ancient technology they had and made a video for Brain Damage.
Second last post on blog!
Sorry but I’m just too proud of this video. That’s why I’m resorting to such shameless tactics to make you see it. :)
