Stillness of a pointless heart

Stillness of a pointless heart

A Poem by prachi prangya agasti
"

Defeated. Drowning. Battling.

"

Running fingertips along the edges

Of hollow shaped hideous grief

I convinced the disabled heart

The profound truth of mortality

Stillness and emptiness fitted together

 

A bleak strength against uselessness

Callous overpowered the warmth inside

I couldn’t fit into spaces that mattered

I sickly moment of succumbing to despair

I finally took the fall into nothingness

Waiting for none to devour my remains

 

The sleep of death spurned the heartaches

Into the existence of an abused word ‘forever’

While the sound of my heart gradually stilled

Quietly and wildly into defeat

 

Is this what antidote of pain feels like?

An endless loop of quietude and void

The veil in between life and death disappears

Into a stunning desperate question:

To be or not to be

"I couldn’t fit into spaces that mattered ... I finally took the fall into nothingness," I totally connected with these two phrases Prachi. Thank you for sharing you awesome poetry.
