How far I have fallen
I’m crumbling inside
I’ve been knocked to my knees
I feel myself sinking, drowning
But you’ll never know
I’ll put on my armor
Harden my heart
You’ll believe that I’m strong
I’ll appear invincible
You’ll never know that
I’m beaten and bruised
You’ll never see the wounds or blood
I’ll never show you my bowed head
I know what it takes to fool you all
I’ll put in a smile and my shades
You’ll never see my pain
No matter what
You’ll believe I’m unbroken
I’ll appear undefeated
Despite the fact
Inside I’m shattered
Barely holding onto it all
You’ll never know
That I’m numb
That I can’t feel
I can read you
I know what you want
I’ll fake feeling
I won’t let you see
How far I’ve fallen
@Wicked_ we all have vulnerable flesh beneath our armour Claire. You ain't alone
@kaia_ Sure you can fall from zero. You just go up then down giggles Anyway if you don’t go high you won’t ever reach the top. Sure you may fall but hopefully the journey will be worth the fall if it happens.

@Wicked_ Why should you even think of falling? If you fall, he will be there to catch you.
@kaia_ you see life the way it should be seen
@kaia_ pain creates strength Kaia, the more we endure the tougher we are. And more compassionate with it, to experience is to understand

Fresh face, short limbs, and unhushed voice,
a being largely free of cellular decay,
its pureed foods and brightly-colored toys,
it's someone else’s hope, a pitiful display
of a denial of a path that’s set -
new, young, old, sick, and dead.
I do not envy it the prison of its bliss,
it’ll be a while till it gets a say in this,
distressful moment of a notice of a fall,
disgraceful thrashing, anger, all,
a wish for cosmic speed and orbiting the Earth,
potentially subjecting someone else to birth,
and then a vision, that
wherever it was sent,
it's not a fall,
it's a controlled descent.
@Wicked_ Shattered glass falls around my feet as you look away.
Shattered glass that held all my dreams.
My fears are set free from the shards laying at my feet.
Who will be my champion, now that you are gone?
My fears are realized as I watch through shattered glass
As you walk down the street.
The window that you placed around me was pure poetry.
The glass in the frames made with rose tint.
You held me in thrall with he beauty of your art,
And destroyed me when you shattered the glass.
My feet are torn as the shards bite flesh.
My blood soaks the flagstone as I try to follow you.
You leave me in misery and walk free,
Leaving me bleeding among the shattered glass of my heart.
@Mickeyyyyy That’s beautiful I love it
@Wicked_ thanks , actually I love poetry

@Scottish You have a far better understanding of situations, people and life in general. But, wait...can we fall from zero height? Well, better not climb too high then..
@kaia_ climb, climb, climb kaia! It's better to hurt from what's real than to regret what's only dreamed of...
@Wicked_ the floor can be a good place to be, i know that!

You can be whatever you that you want to be.
@linear I love it. Gives a slight sense of hope yet helplessness to control ones fate. I think I’ve met someone better than I at writing. hugs you Thanks for the reply
@Scottish indeed it comes in all form and shape, I have no disrespect and I appreciate,also I know , as you said need to have connection towards it to understand and appreciate it, louis macancie may be I didn't connect with him or nothing interesting he have written, according to me something I can appreciate.. I am sure I came across but not like Persian poets which is more darker pain realistic logic innit, please check if know them it's good or else it's never too late to know like Hafiz!! Kalil gibran..
And we live now and it is stupid to compare poet from 200 years ago.. but feel pethaticaly sad we cant even match that old school brain .. still those poem are valid in future also will be appreciated each and every line i guess !! So that's the difference they made in Thier time and far far futurestic..
Also point is proved from my side hope you understand what exactly the point was ??
@Cosmic_Lady I’m the me that I always am. I try and stay true to myself. Some days I’m a better me than yesterday. And some days I’m a worse me. And some days I’m the me that is barley existing.
Want a true friend who will there with meh in my bad and good times who will never leave my side who will take care of me who will there with meh when nobody else will be there I swear I will do the same🥀♥️
