The Fall

The Fall

A Poem by hattrick1090

I'm falling  I can't stop myself

I'm falling  wheres to go?

I'm left to plunge unto the earth

Where nothing is to go.

Dare I try to stop myself?

At best I won't succeed.

The winds shall wrap around myself 

And take me to my knees.

The memories flow throughout my head

As  blood begins to rush.

The cards of life dealt to my hand

behold a royal flush.

Even the finest must eventually fold

For there will come a new.

A new seed to plant to nourish and grow

Just like I once grew.

"What see you?" may you ask

When I descend throughout the sky.

A single memory that encapsulates 

My life that has passed by.

I'm falling I can't stop myself

With seconds left to brace

I'm falling and I've reached the end

Now I'm left to wake.

as a poker fanatic, i always enjoy a good "life is a gamble" poem, the imagery though is quite bone chilling. i keep seeing death sleeping in a chair across a poker table, which disturbs me in a good way. great job.

Death is waking up? Nice. This poem is well written and raises some important questions. It is important to think about what the end will be like, and what our final thoughts will ultimately be.

This is incredible. To me, it symbolizes a gambling addiction flawlessly. Great work, I really enjoyed this piece.

Always going forward which is a gamble, how we land your words seem so fitting to every ones flight through life! I really like this poem and will add it too my favorites.

This might have more than one meaning, or we could all interpret differently I suppose. There's an incredible sense of spiralling downwards... ' I'm left to plunge unto the earth Where nothing is to go. '

Again, it could be a nightmare situation with a terrible fall involved 'Now I'm left to wake.'

Or this could be about any serious situation where you feel out of your depth, don't know how to handle it
'Dare I try to stop myself? At best I won't succeed. The winds shall wrap around myself And take me to my knees.'

Not sure still, even though I've read it three times. Whatever your meaning or intention, it's an unusual theme and done well. Your wording is very pictorial 'The winds shall wrap around myself And take me to my knees.' (tho I think 'me' instead of 'myself' would be better)

Thank you so much for sharing.

i really enjoyed reading this. much so that i read it a few times over and over before writing this.
its very fast pace which adds to the excitement and its very visual. i could see it all happen in my head.

my favorite lines are the last 2.
to me it said: life approaching death is painful, but after death, like any end, there is always a new beginning. here is your chance to be "born again" and have peace...and the character in the poem wakes up to this world.
whether i'm right or wrong, theres no doubt that this is a good piece. nice job
