Warped and Twisted

a poem by Karthikeyan

Harsh words and violent blows
Hidden secrets nobody knows
Eyes are open, hands are fisted
Deep inside I’m warped and twisted
So many tricks and so many lies
Too many whens and too many whys
Nobody’s special, nobody’s gifted
I’m just me, warped and twisted
Sleeping awake and choking on a dream
Listening loudly to a silent scream
Call my mind, the number’s unlisted
Lost in someone so warped and twisted
On my knees, alive but dead
Look at the invisible blood I’ve bled
I’m not gone, my mind has drifted
Don’t expect much, I’m warped and twisted
Burnt out, wasted, empty, and hollow
Today’s just yesterday’s tomorrow
The sun died out, the ashes sifted
I’m still here, warped and twisted…
