The Malignant

by Atikah Muhsin on Tuesday, 01 June 2010 at 23:53

She carries a boulder in an embrace
Her steps, locked on a limping pace
Along this endless journey
She's bullied, bullied, bullied
By the crushing winds
By those smirks of filth
Yet she walks, walks , walks
Only to be failed
By the glued rocks.

Some kind of a beast
She couldn't tolerate with
Loving, it cuddles
Adamant, it protects
Little that it knows though
It's, in reality, threatening
The soul it belongs to.

And she feels like she's naked
For she is her own veracious diary
Every tick of her
Berserks words,
Screamin' out loud.

Guess the traitors won't quit
The boulder, she carries
And she walks, walks, walks
For she's aware
Of His presence there
As her last gram of strength.
