The Fall Of A Man

The Fall Of A Man long poem

Photo by Jun Seita

loner in the desert
incapable of enjoying the stars
knight of no man’s land
cannot stand on his own
desperate for a touch
‘pathetic’, they shout
and wonder how he lost his mind
love only made him weaker as life took its toll
company only made him stranger to his bare soul
young on paper
heart’s a hundred years old
word on the street: there’s still a bit of hope
but devotion is a fatal disease
‘maybe it’s too late for him now’, somebody whispers
one could’ve broke it down for him
‘young man, love is the shortest way to die.’

The Fall Of Nod

The Fall Of Nod long poem

I watch storm clouds drag themselves over broken city skylines. Listen to their thundering hearts, beat the promise of the malign. The frigid touch of rain, falling from a million hollow eyes. I wait and wish for my demise. In
