It happens in a blink
sending your mind
into a deep abyss.

It's the feeling that eats at you,
slow and deep; painful and empty.

I'm feeling that feeling again
and it's bringing me down,
deeper and lower.
Will I ever come out?

There goes that feeling again
and its bring me down quick.
I'm trying to find the strength to surface
but I'm being eaten alive.

As your heart pounds through your skin
the rush of blood
causes explosions everywhere.
I feared it would end this way.

I'm losing this game.
When I open my eyes
will I be living?
I've been busy lately so this will be my post for the week. This is an older poem from about a year to a year and a half ago. I changed the piece to make it more clear and concise.

Hate to be critical, but I only really like the last two stanzas. The second-to-last stanza feels particularly fresh. The rest, less so.

I don't doubt the sincerity of the emotions (YOUR EMOTIONS ARE INVALID - I DENY THEM!), just the originality of their expression. The 'deep abyss' and 'eaten alive' were a bit of a turn-off.

I do like 'I'm feeling that feeling again' though. It's a very curious line.

Cheers,

PS: 4th Stanza, second line. "and it[']s bring[ing] me down quick". If I were being a grammatical pedant, I'd ask you to add 'ly' to 'quick'.

Yeah, I know it isn't my best stuff. I attribute that to it being an older piece. I haven't had much time to work on fresh poetry.

Thanks for your comments.

Its funny you say you like the last two stanazas because it where I made the most improvements from the original version.

I've had feelings like that before... Not plesant... But... the spiritual battleground is filled with many unplesantries, is it not?

I guess you could say that's half the fun...does that make me sound like a cynic? LOL.

Thanks for the comment and the favorite.

Love it a lot. It reminds me of a more explosive version of a song I love dealing with more powerful emotions with greater consequences than complacency.

Always enjoy your poetry immensely.
