The Oblivion

The Oblivion

A Poem by zwartenkot

My name is Gabi Inscore I'm from Michigan and the genre is poetry Email: [email protected]

Welcome to the oblivion
If you’re here it's not by choice
It destroys any and all creation
It even takes your voice

I guess this is my punishment
Being stuck in Limbo
In the other world I only heard resentment
Now I just hear the wind blow

I know I made mistakes
And that I'm here to serve my penance
I can't help it that my heart shakes
As I feel the darknesses’ presence

You can’t fight the oblivion
But you can give it your best shot
This is what happens when
You try and be something you’re not

The lies spread like wildfire
I didn’t anticipate my web would grow this big
Lost in the sound of gunfire
My only option is to dig

But when the rain hits the fire
And the silence fills the room
The situation has become dire
This might be my impending doom

It holds me back as I scream
As I’m fighting against the current
All of this feels like a dream
Because my screams are silent

No one can hear me
How will I make it out?
I scream like a banshee
As I’m pulled under by doubt

No matter how hard I fight
I grow weak
As day turns to night
My future seems so bleak

The silence is shattering
I struggle to breathe
I continue suffering
Fighting against the darkness beneath

I can’t keep my head above water
I feel as if I’m finally going to drown
Its doesn’t even matter
The darkness won and pulled me down

You can’t fight the oblivion
No matter how hard you try
It ends all creation
And no one can hear you cry

Excellent rhymes. Liked wildfire and gunfire especially. It makes you wonder what is at the end...
