Mentality Flux

He Sinks Into His Chair,

The Wood Splinters into

His Back, His Arc Does

Not Fit This Design.

    - And The Days Drip Like The Pouring Rain -

The Words Form Chords in His 

Head. He's Not Used to the Red.

His Eyes Consume themselves

As He Writhes and Remembers.

     - He Twists His Own Memory, And Makes Himself Watch -

There is This Vast Emptiness,

Between Him, And The World.

His Mindset Warped so Horrifically

He Has To Write to Release.
 
     - What Release? -

Deaths Alternative Wearied Him

Greatly. And The Days Taunted

Him With a Grim Expression of

Embitterment and Malevolence.

     - Please Help Me -

He Pleads to The Boy Who Lost

His Mind, When He Lost His Faith.

There's No Place For You Within

The Realms of Stability.


He Breaks

And Breaks.

    I want to hug the poet and console, hoping the poet will act as a transmitter to the subject's need ... I want to read the poem and shout jubilee ... I am at the crossroads where genius poses my ambiguity ... a towering write here, my friend.

    Okay, that is NOT all... sorry I read this again, and had to comment... again :P First of all there are so many lines that I absolutely love in this piece... but the part that makes me say it out loud is "He Breaks And Breaks." What a beautiful ending... and so true... it doesn't just end. I am always torturing myself with my memories... which is another of the lines that is simply gorgeous. I LOVE YOU!!!

    Ouch, purple spots under a quiet voice; sad poems are very common yet this one seems to exist so fluidly and honestly, without any kind of problem, and that's the point, being pure, exploding slowly and in threads; the atmosphere is so dense...wow; thanks for the experience!! I hope everything is fine
