Apprehension: part II

November 2, 2020

FREE WRITING

4
    Apprehension follows.

A clustered ball of unnecessary
            f e a r
that the human race holds onto for dear life, afraid of letting themselves

live on the
    
    edge.

Afraid of letting the edge

Live
On
Them.

    They casually stroll across the park of anxiety, collecting broken petals with no factual
benefit.

The molten thoughts that ooze from the skulls of adolescents swallows them

    w h o l e.
    
I have not a need in the physical earth to dabble with the 

dead blooms
on the
dead trees
of 
forbidden 

    c o n f i d e n c e.

My best friend.


I abandoned my demented, withering consciousness

before it could
afflict such a
    inevitable
ethos.

Apprehension spits no blatant lies, musters no pristine falsehood,

Not
Like
The venomous
                            C o n f i d e n c e. 
 
     Apprehension carries a sense of instinct, a primitive survival tactic, doesn't it?

Confidence manifests from     
    savagery    
beyond my non-existent eyelids.

    Drip   
        Drip
            Drip


Our minds melt away.

    Drip
Drip
    Drip.

    ...

G o n e

  
Hey guys,

If you haven't read Confidence: part I,
I suggest reading it for background so this one will make more sense. I'm experimenting with different writing styles and such and it's pretty fun. The last few lines I am honestly very proud of and may end up using in my novel. I hope you all enjoy! Please comment below your thoughts. I hope everyone is having a good day/night!

    i have to admit, i don't get the part about "non-existent eyelids"
    otherwise... i like the contrast you made between confidence and apprehension. how one feeds you pretty lies, while the other doesn't. and the formatting is just so neat!
