The Lure Of My Abyss

The Lure Of My Abyss

A Poem by TK Little (dave)
"

.

"
in a dialogue with my nature
on the lure of the abyss
he says this to me...
at the bottom lies
what would consume you
but first steels your mind
turns your flesh into iron
provides you demons to battle
bathes your body in fire
provides you angels to love
flowers your soul with passion
all from the bottom
to you on your way
into the greatest unknown
where lies what will destroy you 
where what will transcend you
turning the broken into fixed
giving pieces to make whole
all on your journey to the bottom
where lies what eventually will ruin you
again break you down 
consume you
piece by piece 
destroy you entirely
swallow your everything
eventually
leave you whole again emptied
to float downward
finally to the bottom
when you let it
when youre ready
when youre tired
from your journeys 
from your battles
from carrying all the metals
and scars from the fires
you will float
to the bottom
strongly aged
fiercely loved 
naked and fearless 
then you will see it
in your end
you feel what it was all along
what lured you all this time
in the end
you will be welcomed
by our nature
into our abyss
to take rest amongst the rest

This was a great piece! I enjoyed all the visuals you scattered throughout the poem. You did an excellent job of wielding emotion to make a point.
I would use some punctuation more purposefully. I think some dashes and periods would help make some points more heavy.
Thank you for sharing!

How do you feel about a band named Tool?
This reminds me of someone who has an addiction and is fighting their way back from the abyss. Just my thoughts
