Blank Space

Blank Space

A Poem by Nightfeather
"

Don't fall for the whispers of the false shepherd.

"

Blank Space


Your breath tastes sorrowful,
For I can hear your whispers,

Feeding further…

I shan’t wait for your ascension, 
For our souls will await deflection.

Why do you see 'life' as your enemy?
And dead as your friend?
For I fail to merge with your broken mind, 
But I can see that it is time for your amend.

 

You are still ‘running on fumes’, 
So let my voice become your bridge, 
And let me become the salt in your wounds,
So I can clean you from the inside.

 

Why are you still wearing those lies like cloth?
Don't you want to see the live behind those lies...?
Revert your mind to a blank space,
So you can pause the whisper’s retrace,
For I know that your silent wish is to have no fear!

Author's Note

Nightfeather
I have a friend who has fallen victim to his inner self. He was pained by the voices inside his head, driving him to suicide but he did not meet the face of dead. For it was not time for his ascension. I was stricken with fear, for I could not hear the sadness in his voice but only after the incident. The wall that he had build around him all these years have finally crumbled. My voice reached the depths of his heart and the whispering remnants are gone.

I haven't posted in a long time, for I was busy with school but I will release some more poems this month, including some lore of my book and I do not own this image:

Mitchell, you are an incredible writer, but you already know that. This particular poem touches my soul and although not intended, it feels me with sorrow. I can feel the clear frustration hidden between the lines. Sometimes we want to make things "better" for those close to us and when something tragic like this happens, we get that helpless horrendous feeling. I am sorry for what happened, truly i am. what you wrote here is clearly coming from a place of sincerity. Thanks for sharing and keep on writing.

I feel like this really put a voice to the intangible experience I've had when dealing with certain people in my life. This is an extraordinary work. I was caught off guard.

Whoa! Even your authors note sounds intense or maybe I just really like your writing. I wish you and your friend good luck to go through this.
