Sadism-Infested by Hafsa Mumtaz

Hafsa Mumtaz | Dec 3rd, 2021 | poetry | No Comments


tinker with a spark of lucifer inside
slithering as a cigarette’s smoke
a sadist heart lies drunk in rapture
a denying soul bleeds mercilessly
enchanting touch of a demon feels
like an alchemist’s gilding wand
if red is love so is blood a dazing
wilderness intoxicates the heart by
a smidgen of hedonism & euphoria
such is the mirth in the hypnosis of
of suffering such is the scarlet flame
of schadenfreude such is the pitch
gulf in the corner of our minds
such is the zeal such is inhumanity
a smirk of exuberance when you
seek vengeance but the thirst of this
diabolic chasm for misery of others
ceases never there is no sin until
you realise one there is no virtue
until you publicize one such is the
beast devouring your conscience
such is the beast feasting on
your impulse on your dark side
