That Other Place

That Other Place

A Poem by Holly Ann

THAT OTHER PLACE

I feel as though I am falling constantly.

Im falling into a darkness that shows no sign of light.

No potential of this blindness to every go away.

I fall and fall until finally I hit the ground,

I cant even see my own shape so I scream.

Only to find out that my voice has been taken.

I cant speak.

I try to stand but my whole body frame is paralyzed.

Why am I here?

Why am I stuck?

I breathe in a deep breath full of fresh air, or so I thought.

The darkness clouds my judgment and I breathe in smoke.

I put my hands to my throat as it burns.

Sinking down to myself, I lay there ready to die.

When will the light find me?

                         Or will it be that other place?

A poem of struggle and desire to find your place. All of us struggle to find our place in this world. I like the description and the question at the end. A very good poem.
