Retribution
You asked forgivenesses,
She didn't reply to it. 
Ironic isn't it?
You only realize that,
Whom you've known died already....

Out of the Rain
The comfort resides in my spirit today,
Releasing me from past pain,
Bathed in light of Gods' retribution,
He pulls me in the sun out of the rain....

Allergic Retribution
Her sneezes didn't prevent her and John Deere from seeking vengeance...
leaving a carnage of dead grass and strewn tissues in her wake

Listen to poem:
Forgiving while waiting for karma's revenge
   sows a seed for your own retribution.
For intent is your responsibilty.
Your aura is your own karma 
   rendered alone in isolation....

Ashes
Life slowly rises out of the ashes,
Only to be greeted by darkness.
A darkness being consumed by woe,
Woe being consumed by sins.
In a never ending motion,
Of just retribution.

Please just once
There’s more than one coward here
Lashing myself in silent retribution half my life
The days are hazy in my mind
The words erased
But the feeling is sticky and deep and boundless
You never reached out either

Lost in Humanity
Aggressive, befitting candor,
defies empathetic fervor.
Grave honesty is just,
kindness literally must not.
Omen partakes queer retribution,
savoring tantamount usurpation.
Vulgar words expound,
yields to zero...

Hierarchy
Violence under anarchy
Anarchy under my screams
Screams under a mental breakdown
Breakdown under chronic daydreams
Dreams under an uprising
Uprising under retribution
Retribution under pain
Pain under God
God under Me.

Impunity of Self
Retribution lies upon
The unredressed,
What lies beyond
Ourselves, 
We abscond,
We finalize, yet we
Never correspond,
We analyze, yet we
Never respond…


Comprehend yourself hence
Transcend comprehension-

Witches
So as a sequel to my last poem,
I gave the unsloved child murders in my childhood a thought,
And oven coven,
I had dinner and talked to the three hecate,
'What does the wise man want?'
We agreed retribution for him,
They suggested I requested but I  said,
Leave it to you....

Subliminal Victory
Scar my intention
Weaken my voice of doubt.
Like a lion caught
In a mousetrap -
Ducking and Diving
And finding
No end
To this dark tunnel
Of retribution.
And for a fleeting moment,
I accept.
I accept me.
Without modification
Or criticism.
I am me
For all
Eternity....

THE DIFFERENCE
Always a thought bothers me.
How the winner should behave
with stuffed ego?

A cipher this side, 
or that side, makes a huge difference
in life.

Some solar retribution
of Yohimbi ?
A victim could wait.

Two severed arms
lay on road, still spurting blood !

Metamorphous
Metamorphous; Trickling on the violet rose, decaying into a crimson thorn.
As sinners vibrant words branch and become dusk, in the fog.
Their cadaver the canvas 
Will truly know the swift, and elegant touch of my,
Retribution.
For I am, the dull - revitalized soul of your sufferer.

Retribution
The cardinal shattered the chalice with blood of his former god and the men garbed in tainted white glorified their new Son sheer roars, juddering holes in riot meet your god 'neath your feet!

Heartbroken
Heartbroken
~~~~~~~~~~
Bitten once again by that fickle mistress of love
Yet I hide beneath the stairs
Lest my penance exact its toll
Her icy talons pierce heart and mind
An endless cycle of malicious retribution
For sins of the father in darkness I kneel
And pray for myself the child.

Destruction. 
Everyday people 
Aiding the evil 
of this art. 
It is retribution for itself. 

How can it be used such? 
How can a country of "peace" 
Endorse such an act? 
Can't they see? 

Is the world as blind? 
Can our eyes not be open? 
Is darkness all? 
Light exists, 
Show it....

Shan’t one discern
Between a reverie yet to conclude?
And unprecedented retribution?

Society may think it dexterous
To berate the triumph of others
And reprimand them
in exclusive and dire scrutiny

Though such a sycophant
Becomes aroused by
The fashioning of controversy
An indictment is questionable...

intransigence
INTRANSIGENCECapricious in opinion
Parental – High handedness
Work put in
By sentinel minions
Juggernaut enthused 
Serial circumstance
Discorded use. 	Abstinence!
Crushed!				UNDONE!
Inconsonance
I am slighted.  Rebuffed!
Disinherited
Urgency brings revolution
Insurgence
Of divine retribution.

End.
