Speak of the unspeakable

March 13, 2021

A lone scream in the dark. 
A plea for mercy. 

The vast unforgiving ocean. 
the venom that pumps in the fearsome creature, 
death looming inevitably above you. 

Fear, you call it. 
But fear is not so kind. 
Fear, we have yet to see. 
For it is the loathsome unknown,
lingering between life and death. 

A life void of fear is no life at all, 
yet a life filled with fear is, 

We must speak of the unspeakable, 
before the weight of our sins comes crashing down upon us. 
Before there comes a day, 
when you don't control the fear, 
the fear controls you. 

Before there comes a day, 
you do what is only, 
The point I am trying to raise is when you let fear control you, you lose control of your actions. And who knows what sins one can commit living in the shadow of the catastrophe that can be. 

Republishing because of typo.

    Wow! This is really powerful! "the venom that pumps in the fearsome creature, " was super powerful! RE: Awww, thank you so much! And aww, those two words were my favourite so I'm really glad you liked them and could feel the emotion!

    Re: thanks ahah
    Typos are the bane of my literary existence lmao. I think that’s another reason why this website is so good. It’s only after you’ve published it that you can find those little mistakes and regrets.

    Re: This is such a cool piece of writing, and it was so powerful; I love all of your diction and syntax and the piece just screams maturity yet simplicity! Marvelous work!

    Wow — this is immensely powerful! I love your tone, and your imagery, particularly “The loathsome unknown lingering between life and death.” Also the republishing because of a typo is such a mood <3
    Have a great day!
