Poem- Stuck in this moment

Staring at my hands

As the lines are growing deeper

Thoughts with no direction

Have no end

Lack of focus

As a hollowing feeling grows

Memories of what has been

Are now just poorly backlit images

 

Future is nonexistent

Seemingly stuck in this moment

A quickly increasing trend

No will to struggle

No desire to get free

Being pulled further down

Feeling this hole starting to close

Hand reaching out

Goes unseen

But is it really reaching for anything

  1. Good job of showing the feeling of hopelessness. Was hoping the end turned around and was surprised it didn’t which made the poem that much better, unexpected!

  3. PRIME EXAMPLE OF TRUE POETRY. WHERE THE WORDS ARE SO VIVID YOU CAN PICTURE IT IN YOUR MIND. IT DRAWS YOU IN.
