And all the tower came crashing down, the blocks collapsing in a pile of rubble. The edifice once stood tall and sturdy but it already had termites eating it from the inside, laying down the initial dominoes that would fall one against the other until the building finally weakened, swayed, and fell away, returned to its original state–dust and nothing.
I write down words to muffle the screams
and helpless, slip away in between
yet often i think i feel too much.
I long consumed the spaces within,
freezing silence, leaving no room but
written out words and muffled down screams.
lone wanderer in search of meaning,
who cowers away from human touch–
fall helpless; slip away in between.
If only I knew how to simply be;
to shoulder the weight of the grim truth
and write down words in muffled screams.
but how long will cold mortality,
sad melodies and lost moments haunt?
the helpless slip away in between
Give bits, then pieces, then all of me.
I can’t tell how I miss you this much
I’ll write down words to muffle the screams
while helplessly slipping in between.
Ever get that feeling when you have so much inside of you, that you feel like bursting and yet you can’t let it out?
I get that.
I get that most days of my life.
