A Poem by dangerbooze

Take a peek into the abyss
Do you like what you see?
Winding spirals of hate
Tendrils of sorrow that cling to your soul
Do you enjoy it?
Please do be honest
Tell me what you think
of the labyrinth of cruelty
Poisonous words more harsh than life.
It is a mystery, no?
How could this reside in such a person?
The agony of living
Past traumas forced to the surface
How could such a person survive?
I shall tell you a secret, yes?
How does one persevere?
It must be some complex reply!
Isn't it?
Surely you jest!
Why, of course it is quite simple
Embrace all of it little by little
Take the pain of others into yourself
It can't possibly hurt more than your own!
Ah, I do hope you'll forgive me
I seemed to have told you something false
What could it be, you must wonder
You feel it now, don't you?
Do you feel it too much?
There is an easy way out
It's right there before you
Pay no mind to what others tell you
You should still end up where you want
So give me this much
My helpless little fly
What is it like
Peering this deep into my mind?

Author's Note

...I have no idea where this came from. The original concept for it is in the last stanza, but all the rest before it...I think that's better left unsaid.

This was honestly breath taking, the whole piece just flows PERFECTLY.
It's gorgeous how it's constructed, you obviously have a natrual hand for a pen.
Amazing work, I truley loved it.
The way yo use your metaphors are also very beautiful.

I'm a lazy writer. I write what I feel when I feel like it. But to be more specific, I have a constant case of writer's block about pretty much every thought that I can think of or even consider. .. more..
