Kingdom of the Heartless

Write a poem describing the thoughts 0f a person in the aftermath of a life altering situation.

You hope to see many,

but there’s only one reflection.

Its tainted, busted, far for perfection.

Puffy eyes, red nose, one of those.

It stands still, it stands alone. 

Misguided, so sad, so mad. 

It moves as if disconnected,

Disconnected from itself,

Disconnected from the world.

It moves to the song of a darker devil,

And the walls are shaking, the floor rumbles.

A firm structure starts to crumble.

Windows shattering at the core,

all that was, is no more.

Try to find a stable ground,

but the quakes are all around. 

Steps taken are so unsure.

Nothing seems secure. 

Stuck in a detour.

So hard to endure.

Searching for the perfect cure.
