[Poetry] Deep Dive Aspects

The waters pass
Along the raging rivers
Spirits fly overhead
Reflected / water’s mirror glass
Like balls of fire, spirits fly
In/ out of sight, they hide.
Clock’s ticking sound rings
Top of the hour
It will devour
Enter through the gate
It’s hunger will sate
Endless hallways await
Footsteps enter your ear
Wondering what will appear
Awaiting death
Staring darkness in the eye
Your very last breath.
Weight measures the water
It’s light as lead
When’d you eat your last bite of bread?
It comes from behind
I’d truly love to remind
A pendulum settled on the waves,
Time no meaning keeps
Yet its ticking stays
Fire stands there
Dark breaths down my neck
A horrible aspect
I’d love to greet
Yet it’ll end with my defeat

I really enjoy this type of writing subject as it allows me to go a little wild with symbolism and such. Basically, it’s describing a dream or trance state. I hope you enjoy it and share if you like.

[Poetry] Scattered Clutter

Clutter/ on the ground
Tossed/ by every wind
I’m spinning/ every which way
I don’t know where to turn.
This mess I’m in
No way out
No turning back
I’m here and stuck…

Why do you jump at me?
What did I do to you
I’m sorry!
If I say it
Will it be better
No space for words
I can’t even say it…

I aim for what’s right
Yet it goes wrong
Can’t you see? I’m trying!
Why not even a glance
I try to tell you true
What’s wrong between me and you
Give me an answer/ a sign
Anything will do…

Spider webs surround us
The dust settles
I want us to say
We made it a very long way
But other thoughts
You seem to have
If this is how we’ll be
Be honest with me
If there’s nothing left
Just give me some rest

This is a longer poem that I just wrote for therapeutic reasons so it’s not so much about being the best written piece, but please let me know what you think and share if you like.
