Nothing To Break Your Fall

  • Poetry will always emerge out of the shadows of depression, shining like a star in the scarcity of light.

Nothing To Break Your Fall

 

In real life,

When you jump off the edge

There is no mattress to break your fall

There is no turning back

Just the end you were seeking

 

When you are gone,

There is no pain or depression,

But the darkness takes over

Not a candle will bring you light

Not a thing can make you bright

 

You are tied down by the darkness,

Unable to move and just lifeless

There is no more you

Nothing you can see

You have died and you resent the fee

The last line is very poignant. It's very powerful. Its speaks loudly of the prce that is paid by giving up.

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.
