Despondence

Despondence long poem

Uploaded by Danny Kingsley


Often I stand,
apart from you, yet a part of you,
Running rings around the parts of you that are askew, from me,
Making no moves,
to harbour through, the pain of pining after you,
Breathing heavy at the thought of shoes, that dance around, my feet,
Even after all this friendship rouse, these night time blues, the days on end that id refuse to know or care of your excuse, the fear id feel id see the news and see your name list in tributes,
That you no longer breathe,

Often I stop,
I think of where, you’ve dreamt to dare,
Memories flicker round my mind til there,
The wounds you do so often bare, become clear, so they do
The days though rare, you’d rip your hair and fight it off yet it would tear, your every thought, your every care, I knew that you weren’t happy there,
But what could I do,

Often I think,
Apart from this, these parts I miss,
The ways in which you’d just flourish, what’s worst of all I didn’t wish,
And ill never live that down,
If I could risk an ounce, to fish you out from where you are in all of this, this far from bliss, this fucking shit, I swear I’d balance all of it, I swear id never let you quit, I know it hurts but please don’t sit, your shaking fists and oh so brisk, accommodating smile I miss, the catalyst is working shifts whilst knowing life won’t always fit, together like it always did when you were right, when you would lift the things my brain thought did exist, and only if I knew more if, the things you thought were half as fit to bare the burden that persists, I swear I’d balance all that shit, I swear I’d hold you, shaking fists, I swear I’d tackle, fight and risk my life to know you’d beaten this,
I’m sorry,
I’ll let you rest.
