Again – A Poem

I don’t think I need much of an explanation for this poem. I’m feeling under a lot of pressure by everyone and I feel like I am slowly losing it, bit by bit. It’s something I can’t exactly understand myself, but I am trying to and so is everyone else. Then again, what does it matter to them? They can live on as usual no matter what state I’m in.

A. A. Kamalov

Here I am once more.

Entrenched in the

The perpetual vortex

A trumpet, a devil’s horn

Pulling me in, rotten sins

Multiple moons pass by

Burden after burden –

Compounding exponentially

For a ferry to Paradise

Is futile: take one for suffering

Instead. You’d go much farther.

 

The quill is mocking me now,

Squid’s ink dissolving intestines

While coral fishes swim by

With benign indifference.

This one will be a short post; a little snippet of how my life is going in my new chapter in life – pre-university. Some might call it ‘college’ but technically in my case I am not studying in a college or uni yet, so I’m going to stick with ‘Pre-U’ or ‘IB’. What’s IB, you may ask? All will be explained below ~
