The Endless Cycle

© 2017 SachikoMochiko

 

 

Every mistake, loss, failure or breakdown…it’s your choice whether or not to suffer from it.

 

 

“I am a human. Just like you and me. I’m young, 13 years of age, but I already feel old. I have learnt that, whatever situation you are in now, it’s temporary. So, enjoy or endure it to the fullest!

 

Whether is another human, your passion or yourself, you fall for it.  This poem I wrote is inspired by both my life and my fellow friends who write with me, sharing their stories. There are many different ways to view this poem. I spent many hours choosing how to structure this and the word choice. I wanted to share this to people who can relate and inspire other writers.”

 

 

 

 

I’m absolutely sick of falling

 

Falling in love and making the same mistake

 

Eaten by jealousy

 

Thinking that it would work 

 

Even when that person who I sought, 

 

Catches another

 

Thinking that they want you

 

Even if the kindness expressed is just…

 

Them.

 

 

Whenever I fall,

 

And no one sought me

 

I fall into a deep, cold abyss

 

Isolating both heart and body

 

From this rotting world

 

Suffocating me and myself

 

From thinking that I will fall again

 

 

But again, I find peace at the bottom…

 

Sitting just above the bedrock of grief 

 

Where your screams of heart break 

 

Is muted by the sea of tears

 

 

 

But I hunger to fall 

 

To seek for another cradle of arms

 

 

After craving for so long

 

I trick myself

 

That my heart has moved on

 

To someone for me

 

But deep, deep down…

 

I know it is just a mask

 

A mask to cover the disheartening pain

 

And to keep me sane

 

As I walk amongst the beings

 

 

 

It’s an endless cycle…

 

 

 

A cycle that is deemed to run my world

 

My kingdom,

 

My psyche,

 

My crust,

 

Like a wheel with a tempting needle 

 

Waiting to cast me to sleep

 

As it wheels me away to again start the cycle

 

 

 

Even if my consciousness is aware 

 

I shrug it off thinking I’m happily a rolling pebble

 

A rolling pebble that has been dropped

 

Dropped into a saltwater sea of fish

 

Where plenty of fish swim to escape

 

Escape the rotting world above

 

 

 

I’m a pebble after all

 

I was meant to sink to the bottom

 

Or be split in half by the fish

 

 

But as the hundreds and thousands of centuries

 

Wear me down

 

My calloused, guarded heart cracks open

 

As the pressure of the rotting earth

 

I. Become. The. Diamond.

 

It was not long after,

 

I was extracted from the bedrock of grief

 

HEATED…

 

POLISHED…

 

Until the skin of this pebble

 

Peels like those onion that brought tears to my eyes

 

 

Someone has found the brightest part of me

 

Someone has found my beauty

 

Someone has also fallen…like me

 

In a mere emotion with two sides

Love

&

Hate

 

 

Well, congratulations that someone

 

Because you have found a rare one

 

Only one here on this earth

 

My mere gratitude cannot express…

 

Express how undeniably grateful I am

 

===

The two of us creates another;

 

“I’m absolutely sick of falling”,

 

she said…

Damn- That was something...else. I was honestly not expecting much when 13 years of age was written and I am so glad that I read all the way through. That was exceptional and nostalgic, please do keep writting and never stop. Thanks for helping me realize a beautiful mind can be anywhere & anyone.

My teacher's feedback:

“Your creative thinking skills are evident in this
emotionally charged piece. Your voice comes through well, expressing who you are, but using a universal topic to appeal to your audience. You are also technically skilled –using and adapting the literary devices we have discussed and explored.

I never like reading lengthy poetry because I feel that it loses its meaning towards the end. Maybe that is me self reflecting on my own writing. This poem isn't a poem so much as a tale or odyssey. I like it. I like it a lot. Your wording is excellent. No grammatical mistakes. The context is very layered in emotion and thought. Like you mentioned, an onion. Double meaning. Different levels could be peeled away to view this work from many angles. Very clever. As a fellow writer I find that good. One of my favorite parts... "A mask to cover the disheartening pain. And to keep me sane. As I walk amongst the beings." It reminds me of the many faces we put on in life to bury the true being that we really are. Hiding our selves from others who are hiding themselves as well. Very well done. This is a personal favorite. I look forward to seeing a revised version, if you make one. In my opinion, it is superb in this raw form.

Same here. :)
It is a cycle. A harrowing cycle that flings us into different parts the wayside. I do like where this piece is going, so I won't be critical of it. I can't wait to see the final product, or a polished product, once it's made. Good luck with your writing!
