1 February, 2022, after midday


You haunt me in the days

You haunt me in the nights

You haunt me in my wake

You haunt me through those eyes


Eyes that stare so deep

Eyes that seem so pure

Eyes that cut through me

Eyes that cause my fall


Fallen yet unyielding,

Fallen yet so proud.

Fallen I have been.

Fallen I won’t bow.


Bound to cause such pain,

Bound to drown us out.

Bound to meet again

Yet time may just run out.


~ End ~

Welcome to the fragments of my mind. Thoughts. Ideas. All once a chaotic yet artistic mess, before I expanded them into entire, complete poems.

    You have a great flow and love the repetition.

    I love the progression into verbs as the head word of each line. Works so well and builds the tension perfectly 🤍

    Is there a name for poems that have the lines in a stanza start with the same word? Really creates a flow

  • I love how poignant this was! I also loved the repetition but not really sure of the theme. Fantastic poem!
