Existing

Existing

A Poem by The Realist

He's slowly fading away
deeper into the dark void 
He shouts my name, screaming, kicking and thrashing about,
arms outstretched towards me 
I try to save him i really do
But he's falling deeper now
growing smaller and smaller by the second
His face blurs through my teary face
If he dies you will die with him, my subconscious screams at me
but it was to late,
When reality hit me.
When i came to realise that it was not he who was falling, but me.
Deeper and deeper i fall into the void, arms outstretched towards him..
although who is he?
He is no one but from my own fantasy 
It was all imaginary
His face
His arms
His voice
His existence
Everything
The only thing that is real is that i'm falling deeper and deeper
I've lost my mind they told me,
I smile through my teary face, as i reach closer to death,
They were right, i did lose my mind, i listened to my mind and not my heart, so now ill pay the price;.....
With my life

Thank you npfd :)
I've been reading the bible regularly over the past 2 years or so, and the topic of ones heart comes up in quite various ways throughout. For instance, Proverbs 4 says: "Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life." but then Jeremiah 17 will say: "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it? " ...
But for most of what is written about "heart", it seems evident that it must be pure and some hearts may even need to be broken before given a new one. I am including a link that you may find useful in considering the issue of "heart" https://www.openbible.info/topics/heart

I view heart and mind as not so very separate, and it is mind that governs the heart. That's my personal view - kind of like: did you ever see a horse riding on a jockey? Or does the jockey ride the horse... In this analogy, the heart is the horse and the jockey is mind. I personally can't relate to your author's note, ("Follow your heart even if your mind says differently....") and I don't endorse it as sound advice, either.

in the next to the last line "to to mind" intent or typo..? heart and mind.. both can and do mislead.. the hope is that they don't both mislead at the same time.. thank heavens for the "gut" that can save us from the ultimate penalty.. if we listen..

Falling and falling but endlessly..... Waiting for the crash and death.... Knowing that no more hope is left....no one to blame and no one to hold on to
Your poetry has the darkest and deepest kind of meanings and I just can't stop reading!!!!! I love the way you write!!!!
