Horribly Us

it is the sound of us falling,
an intense dissonance punctuating the wind,
falling through an impossible column of mirrors,
each distortion magnifying our own,
horrifying us, horribly us,
it is the sound of us falling
upwards like inverted rain,
reflections screaming as we laugh,
phantasms chortling as we weep,
the sky breaking into puddles
one for us, one for them,
one for them, one for us,
it is the sound of us falling
blinded by the warp of our truth,
not knowing where
it will end,
not knowing where
we will end,
terrifying us, terribly us,
reflections chortling
as we weep.

  2. This says so much to be about the dilemma the human race finds itself in these days – and you have expressed it with exceptional talent for abstract writing.

  3. Intensively eerie… real… and tender in its humanity. There is a lot of gloom in the words, a sort of dark despair that makes me want to reach out and embrace the speaker, not just because she’s suffering at the sight of what man is… but because souls like hers are part of a healed future… if we are to have it.
