Misanthrope

Misanthropy! The drastic dynamic
of a sceptical bona fide cynic,
observing the fall of ideals,
as the new world order reveals.

I! Feel nothing inside but apathy!
The only excitement comes from antipathy…
I! Sense the terror that is all defying,
as the human inside me is dying…

I! See the bleakness within the anthology
of all emotions succumbed to misanthropy,
sensibility undergoing aphaeresis,
a cacophony paving the basis!

I! I’ve seen ideals like gangrene
being removed for a life anodyne,
a synchronous world in aponeurosis,
living still life within ankylosis…

The art of betrayal as episteme
idolatrised the apocope of Mneme.
New world ethics enforcing apostrophe.
Anthropoidea in orchestrated choreography

Antistrophe emphasizing epistrophe!
Epistrophe emphasizing antristrophe!
Amaurosis painted over in hagiography,
self-drawn portrait in self-biography…

I! Retract myself from this circus
that has lost its anthropocentric focus.
A world built over materialised zoanthropy,
all that it breeds inside me is Misanthropy!

      Just realised I hadn’t authorised the comments. I’m stupid some times, sorry girl
      Thanks for taking the time to read this! And thank you for commenting!!!
      As a matter of fact I was not aiming at using so many Greek rooted words but once I started, I figured it’d be cool to showcase how many of our words have made it into the English language!

      Thanks again!!!

    That is sad. Do you really believe this?

    • Phlegyas says:

      Hey, uhmm, you! lol
      What do you mean “do you really believe this”? I wrote it, I obviously feel that the world has gone astray and yeah, probably I do believe that there’s no need to kind feelings among people anymore since man designed and implemented a society based solely on needs instead of ideals.
      In any case, thanks for reading and hope to see you around =)
      PS: it’s not sad, it’s objective.

    nice lyrics…

    Beautiful! Thanks for showing us the world through the fascinating eyes of a Misanthrope. It can indeed be seen as place rich with apathy and discord.

    I have to agree with Ioanna. This is definitely sad. For your own shake, I hope you’ll grow up and see the beauty in the world. Anyway, interesting use of the language.
