gibberish nonsense caught in my lungs

September 12, 2020

FREE WRITING

14

language is gibberish that society agreed had meaning/and out of all the sounds my mouth can make/not one is the right one/I could be drowning in words/but still be dry/I could be breathing in syllables/but still lack air/I could have all the shreds of talent this world can offer/and still not know how to convey/in the right way/how the rose is red/how the violet is blue/I have these bracelets/but they've morphed into shackles/squeezing/strangling/I know/I will die from suffocation/as wasted dreams fill my lungs/poisonous vapors I inhaled from secondhand optimism

is my venting dark enough/is my poetry pretty enough/is my pain pleasing enough/am I ugly enough to earn your pity/am I beautiful enough to earn your respect/they say we are all beautifully broken/but I fear/I have given shards of myself away far too many times/that now there are but splinters in the place/where my smile used to be

splinters that burrow beneath my dark skin/am I playing pretend/I'd rather live a fantasy/because fiction makes sense/reality does not








 
A companion piece to regurgitated dreams stuck in my throat

And like in that piece, this isn't strictly based off anything I'm going through right now. I wrote this with one of my original characters in mind, who I imagine likes writing in this style. He tries to be an optimist, but that doesn't mean he can't  experience bouts of melancholy. :)
