Spiraling Staircase

Spiraling Staircase

A Poem by Dante

I could sometimes take direction.
I'm losing myself everyday.
We could fall down on our hearts.
Lose your moment, lose your one,
mind your God.
I'm like two shows. 
Try to help me.
Leave me. Leave me.  Hold me.
Promise your love.

I would die
if it meant your love.
But I could lust
no matter what's above.

Heaven and Hell,
life and death.
Sometimes make me
waste my breath.

So take a step
in my direction.
Baby, I'm all

I am losing
the war I wage
on myself almost

We could stand to
fall apart.
And sit down on
our empty hearts.

Lose your eyes,
Lose your eyes.
For just one moment,
lose your eyes.

Lose your eyes.
Lose your eyes.
For just one second glance,
lose your eyes.

Lose your mind.
Lose your mind.
For God save the pity stance.
Lose your mind.

I'm thirsting for you
like nobody knows.
I'm broken in two
for all of your shows.

I'll try to relax.
I'll try to repent.
But God help me now.
I'm farther off the fence.

Leave me something I
can remember you by.
If you leave me,
please hold me tight tonight.
There are things
I never could have said.
Trust me when I 
promise you I'm dead
without your

I could sometimes take direction.
I'm losing myself everyday.
We could fall down on our hearts.
Lose your moment, lose your one,
mind your God.
I'm like two shows. 
Try to help me.
Leave me. Leave me. Hold me.
Promise your love.

Its not that it's redundant, but it's like a mindful echo of a strong message waiting to be unvailed through the changing font size and spacing xD. Good work as always Dante! 👌

Hey Dante. Good to see you writing again. Very cryptic but the reader can feel a lot of emotion in this. Thanks for sharing :)

Thank you for sharing this. It was very enjoyable to read. It reminds me of a rock song. This could be interpreted and related to in many different ways. The first thing that comes to my mind is the feeling of doing psychedelic drugs and drifting into ur trip. U might want someone to help u but want someone to let u be alone and lose urself in ur trip at the same time. It's like a tug of war btwn staying safe and testing your own adventurous mind. (That was just my feeling of how I relate to the words and how they're presented. I am not guessing at what u were writing about)

A lot of energy in the words. You made the reader feel the need and the want of love. I liked the flow of thoughts leading to hopeful ending. Thank you Dante for sharing the excellent poetry.

I had so many images coming up in my head. This just really hit me. It is very well written and I'm glad you shared with me. I always love reading your stuff, although i been gone a considerable amount of time! I'm glad you still kept me around and still send them to me.

Thank you :) Glad you enjoyed it!
This definitely reflects your title
in your structure on the page.
It seems out of control in thoughts--meaning--spiraling--consistent with the title, too.
