the fallen

I have fallen
Don’t help me up, let me spend some time here by myself ….. Alone
I feel nothing inside
Empty
Chilled to the bone
I will get up on my own 
Once again I will roll like a stone
Crawling back up through the darkness
I will reclaim my throne

    I like this kind of ending...to many interpretations... but what is important is the persona's tenacity(It's pride?). Great write, James. Ruben.

    and what is it the thrown you are trying to reclaim? pride perhaps? no help, let me rise alone, empty. May be filled with yourself when accomplished alone, but when the feeling gone the loneliness stays. so many interpretation i have in my mind when reading this poem, very good!
