Hara-kiri

Hara-kiri
by M. Awais Aftab
Dedicated to Mayhem.

To disembowel
To drive oneself
to the heart's last beat

To cease to be!

But why?
Does ex-cease-tence need a reason.

Madness. Mania.
Desperation. Depression.
Folly. Frenzy.
Grief. Greed.
Honor. Houri.
Pain. Penance.
But the Archangel of them all...

Arrogance.
To think, to believe
Nay
To know
That one deserves better than this world
This life
That is the secret
Behind that final slice of knife
From left to right.
