Ravenous

written by: Rania M M Watts

@CCInkQuills

 

stoic
found
solace
in delight

unaware
oxymoron

why do you
savagely devour
yourself -- similar
to a helpless
ouroboros

who not only
resigns itself
into a battle
of two halves
that refuse to bind
a concrete self

essentially -- it's a struggle
that will never be surrounded
by the tethered appreciation
of fallen crimson roses

a tragic fate
-- what happens
to those souls?

who merely
existed for humanity
to utilize as an example
of authentic atrocities?

perspective
should lead to hope
-- frightful if it vanished.

 

NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR:

"Ravenous" is based on the work titled "Feast" of Artist, Bekky Beukes.

My name is Rania M M Watts, I am a stay-at-home mom of 4 whimsical children & wife of one brilliant & athletically inclined husband. (Oh, and, I take Pizza orders over the phone to help make ends meet) I'm looking to finally pursue my dream of being a working poet. I was born in Beirut, Lebanon to Palestinian parents in 1974. With the outbreak of the Lebanese Civil War in 1975, my family emigrated to Canada when I was 2 years of age -- for a peaceful life that didn't involve bombs or explosions.

I dabble in myriad of Art mediums, however am most at home with a: pen, crayon, eyeliner, quill and any type of parchment. Always deemed a freak of nature because of my outlooks and perceptions, I've allowed my imagination to dominate my core since the age of 13 when I told my Grade 8 teacher Mr. Natale, I wanted to flee to Europe with a typewriter and create in fields of long grass... Ever since, I've been a Master Imaginarium & Oubliette Architect, there is NOTHING I can't write about!

Cement Covered Ink Quills is my brain-child blog where I relish focusing on the premise of 'The Verity of Humanity' via various Art Mediums.
