Falling (poem)


Stay this moment

Of all those once where yesterdays turned black



Drawn these wishes

Of fantasies whose ever never were



Purge this shadow

Of echoes from another part of me


How did we get here

What can recall

Seems mindless confusion

Has wiped out all trace


A blame you for this

Others for that

But now these brief riches

Mean nothing at all


Reason unravels

Love’s feelings flip

In bottomless hollow

A soul seeks a bend



Cries some darkness

Outstretching a sole but promiseless hand



Comes an answer

From a voice I hadn’t heard for a while

Music only

You always write so deep and passionately; always leave me to ponder and always amazed.

Very heartrending poem. Loss of love is so very painful. We must have been on the same thought patterns this day in our writings. Powerful music video too.

Voted up ++++ and sharing

God bless, Faith Reaper

I like the way it kind of changes mood slightly at the end.
