National Poetry Month: Bonus - When All Has Fallen

National Poetry Month: Bonus - When All Has Fallen

I know I already posted my final scheduled poem for National Poetry Month, but I recently came across this old poem I wrote during my high school/early college days. This one’s a little different than the ones that have come before it, but I wanted to post this one because there are a few lines I’m particularly proud of, even all these years later. Enjoy.


When All Has Fallen

When all has fallen, even your feces

You experience pain, witness frailty

And realize the weakness that is the human species

Now understanding the pricelessness that is mortality

Fading light, fading fast

Darkness surrounds, shadows consume all

Heart beats melting, approaching your last

Cold travels up your spine, to your knees you fall

Memories scrolling out of order, like an unedited movie

Thoughts overlapping each other

Drunkenness, respect lost, you think you're sorry

Empty lungs, closed eyes, prepare to meet the father

Ignorance is lost, you are I

Innocence is lost, now I die






Before you read to much into the motives behind a poem like the one you’ve just read, understand sometimes I like to write darker things for the fun of it. That may sound oxymoronic, but remember, I’m the kind of person that enjoys watching horror movies, and sleeps better at night for it. This is all to say that you maybe shouldn’t look for meaning where there isn’t any, and just enjoy the ride
