It Feels Like or Liquid Drainage

Updated: Jun 14




It Feels Like

OR (liquid drainage into non-existence)


it’s like feeling like

you are between that thin veil

between nothingness

and

mediocre existence

but truly, (if you are honest)

you have already,

slowly,

little by little,

dissolved into oblivion

.yes. .you have already surpassed that.

.are on the other side.

.falling into transparency.

.merely an empty glass.

.a window.

.notREALLYthere. pulverized

by life’s heavy coat. never intended alas, all the same, transpired. left to feel

only mediocre


left to feel



empty


things are lost

gone

inside



(the heart grieves so much knowing this)


wishing so much to retrieve

all life that once shone

(with glittering teeth abundancy and incandescent radiance)

(you could always

see it

eyes,

feel it

energy,

breathe it

presence)

now reduced to but a dim dark pebble.


over there. like the kind you pass by on your walk down the street, unnoticed.

the underside of a rock even.

more lifeless and unseen,

passed over and ugly,

more unwanted

and unnoticed

than any leaf blowing in the wind than any unmarked grave

than any unseen shift of your leg under a table

Uncared for Glossed over Forgotten given to being treated as mediocre. Microwaved Responses. Hand Outs Galore.

more perceived understanding now

and with it,

a disdain not anger,

more sorrow. disdain

downward casted lid and sunken head slowly sinking Feeling Within Deeply no preciousness

The river streaming now Inside the outlet of her eyes Nightly Daily

Nightly

Daily A true river it perseveres never lets up now and sheds any remnants, any resemblance, to those beautiful embers that

were so clearly burning (so very fiercely) before

BEFORE one would hope to touch it

reach for it hope to meld and become one with it be near it

breathe it BEFORE now,

that melting

only Liquid Drainage Into Non Existence thee flattening of existence

til’ it is completely flat

and parallel

and unseen

to drift and walk away into nature’s meadow and lose ones-self forever .never to be missed. render into non-existence and flow into oblivion Nothingness

reach out and slip away


reaching hand

stretching body

elongated mind


reaching body

reaching mind

Forward

Into the forest

To be immersed

Taken away by want

Backward

Forward

Pathway

In front of

Leading

Turn towards

And away from the behind


disarm

vanish

dissipate

disappear

relax

into

utter

oblivion


Sucked up

and

swallowed

into

the corn fields

Of

Nature


ghost


incomparable

grief


ceaseless

unrelenting

relentless

without respite

continual

unremitting

incessant

interminable


unabating


grief


(this is how her river feels and flows nightly in the depths of her mind)
