This is what would happen if I was in control



Travelling on Salvia, through space and time, without moving.
Come with us, beyond the edge of nowhere.
Past infinity into the home of the Mighty.
The youth is dead and all innocence is lost.
One love to last for an eternity, that died.

A map of the universe in an unknown language.
Drowning in a thirst of knowledge that burns.
Man being beaten into submission, buried in sand.
Slaves throwing themselves off the molten cliffs.
Swallowing a sword of truth that shatters every lie.

Systems blown away by the wind that purifies.
Evolution meeting it's own doomed destiny.
A meritocracy in which the elite are Kings.
Forgiven for being evil by ascending to a higher plane.
Whispering the secret meaning of being.

Profoundly explaining the wisdom of death.
I torture and punish you, holding your neck, choking you.
Why don't you love me?
Why don't you feel anything at all?
I can only feel the pain, although it does make me smile.

You struggle against me, but you are so weak.
Trembling and screaming you vainly attempt to fend me off.
If I choose to be so, then I can be invincible.
You bleed on my floor and then I put you to sleep.
Hitting your young body until it's black heart stops beating.

A disturbing traverse along a dark path that reeks of violence justified even by the enlightened elite such as the blind eye to the CIA torture flights. It starts in a bouncy science-fiction theme, shed its philosophical and theological skin and ends in smple sadism and murder. Perplexing on many levels! Mitch 🙂

Thanks for reading.
It is superplexing, written whilst inebriated I admit.
Not for the faint-hearted.

Ahem. Blimey, I'm not even going to attempt to be flippant on this one, Mr. Fitbin. I'm just glad it's fictional. Science fictional at that. Nice work, fella.

Thank you, El Sunkerino.
It is an exploration of vivid, aggressive thought becoming reality.
The kind of angry whims that float around but are never realised.
In other news, I do have a Tesco food delivery coming tonight. I can't wait.

Ahh Tesco. Weirdly, I get excited too when Tesco deliver. I dunno why tho? Ahem. Sorry, it's early, I'm tired and I have Tesco on my mind. You deserved more comment on this, Mr. Fitbin. Good to see that the nibbers aren't totally losing it. I do wonder sometimes. Well done fella.
