Falling

Falling

A Poem by Heromen Selena
"

This is the story of my life. Right here. Laid out in front of you. Happens all the time and I can't seem to rid myself of this cycle.

"
A complicated past
So thwarted with pain
Lies, Distance, Hurt
Your support was me
Because no one else stood beside you

Two broken sides
Cracked from the same problem
Lies, Distance, Hurt
Both fell to me for back up
How could I possibly choose?

Still the same fight
Divides the two now still
Lies, Distance, Hurt
Pulling me every which way
Shredding my own base for myself

There's nothing left
Of me to support either of us
Lies, Distance, Hurt
I'm all washed out
With nothing left for me to hold on to

I choose not to choose
And that has what's gotten me here
Blackness, Pain, Loss
That's what I'm made of
Because they've ripped everything from me

Now when I need you the most
You've gone running and hide
I'm spiraling out of control
Yet you still stand outside my reach!
Why won't you come help me?

Like the repetition, and your end line packed a good punch.

Thanks :) It's one of my favorite things to end a poem with. Floaty ends don't really do it for me.
Liked it I did. Such soul deep raw feelings of "why is it always me" is the feel I got from this piece. Reaching for the shoulder that you need and is not there as yours was for them. Hard to wish for that brace, only to find yourself falling down the well with nobody there tossing the rope for you to catch hold of... The truck speeding down the hill without an E-Brake that works. My friend says that about my self-doubts as they start down that hill. Very relatable piece you made. I do hope that you find that hand to grasp... :)

Oh I'm so glad! :) Thank you for reading, both you and your friend.
It sounds like a lot of drama that goes on in my life as well. The repetition in this pulled me in and refused to let go until it said the entire story. Very captivating, good job! :D

I think everyone's been through this once or more in their life. We are heading downhill, but no one's around to catch us or help us back up. Beautiful poem btw. :)

I like it. Good job. This seems to be everyone's life. We all go through it, we just have our own spin on it. It's part of being human since humans have been on this planet.
