Featured Review on this writing by Megan Mackenzie

Taking flight...

The Death

of 

Poets

 

 

is it any wonder

how writers,

even so young ~

their faces tight and bright with sun,

their eyes a gleam ~

how yet they still succumb

to emptiness?

 

their faucets dripping dry

an empty sky

no air, nowhere to run

no thoughts to dream?

 

then let the bullets fly

let blades invade the vital stream

let souls depart

 

and in ascension seem

to find their heart

This struck me hard. It's something I find really relatable. Also, as you know, I love dark things like this.
That last line, wow.

Not a popular topic here, but I delve into it on a few pieces. I like dark things too on occasion...not all the time...probably not most of the time. But, as you know, writers are motivated by depression as much as any emotion. Perhaps more.

Thanks for reading this, girl!
