The Highs, The Lows, And Rockbottom

The Highs, The Lows, And Rockbottom

A Poem by DearSweetAgony

 I wear my sickly heart on my feeble wrists;
 tattered and bloody, I bless this curse with a blades kiss.
It feels as good as a tigers sharp bite,
And stains the blade like a high red kite
Might stain the blue sky.
But that poor kite is afraid of hights!
And the string is rapidly fraying!
As the kite finds itself weighing
Out the possibilities of surviving!
I guess thats the highs and lows of flying...
And that same blade will
Turn into a bunch of pills.
That slide down so slowly
And yet, sets a high fire within me.
As my pupils grow
I stop my blood streams flow.
 By entering into my flesh a poisonous, silver rose
Thorn. That will eject its poison, and bloom in me before Spring,
And its beauty will keep me from seeing
The addiction that keeps me from living
And acting normally.
And all places seem the same and different
From the places that I've been before, and yet, 
They appear differently 
From that cozy place that I used to be.
But now, I am cold in the limbo of uncertainty.  
As the sun rests on the horizon,
And I'm as high as an American
Flag.  My blood falls into the cadence
Of the marching in my heart, that tramples my existence;
And soothes me into silence.

Bravo for experimenting with something new - I think you've hit the mark. The darkness is not weighed down with pathos and the expression of ideas and images is superb. Loved it!

You drive us deep into the psyche... the pain that nearly overwhelms... that must be put to slip with pills and scars... Dark and powerful.

(Urgh... my review didn't work the first time. -.-)
"Out the possibilities of surviving!
I guess thats the highs and lows of flying..."

I really like these lines for some reason... the whole poem reminded me of a bad mushroom trip I had not to long ago, but I don't think it's about getting high...

It seems to be a poem about suicide (sorry if it's not, I suck at poetry stuff. :
