Apocalypse

Layer by layer unveils
Past interlocked bones
The spirit breaks loose
As a luminescent froth

Lucid colours seep out
From skins and fabric
Infuses into one other
Over heaps of cadaver

A futile existence fought
Under the digital blanket
Terrorized by one another
Through pixels and binary

The haze of consciousness
Overlay the real and virtual
Lies shoved into the dubious
Sparks a meaningless chaos

As remains set to flame
The humiliation stings
To watch is a retribution
To the death of the dead


Gopika Pramod


A post apocalyptic scenario where the end of humanity is not the cold-blooded massacre but the subsequent reunion of souls.

  1. Wow, such a wonderful piece! To be honest, at first I loved the third stanza more but going through this again made me fall in love with the whole piece. Really well written, loved it ❤
