This Feeling Inexistent

This Feeling Inexistent

A Poem by Heather

Beauty is motion; just as love.

The stillness of this feeling inexistent;

I wished to fling myself out far past desertion

Upon the balcony, over its edge

Where I can lift my voice unto the moonlit sky

And break my soul in half, then die.

 

Living is death; my mind above

This struggle in a trite persistence.

The crushed earth beneath cries out some vague assertion -

A ghostly symphony, across the ledge

With a token of my final breath I give

And join them after death, then live.

For some reason that's such a beautiful thought to me. I'm glad it came through :)
Lovely piece of writing. Haunting yet very clear in its message. Very easy to read as well - it flows beautifully.
