STAR**** **OOP**S: A Surreal Space Poetry Project – Page 8

The seconds follow

Faster

They get under you, throw you.

Confusion, yours

Is firm.

It lasts long, and longer

And,

Then it’s gone.

 

Now you have

Nothing.

Unable to decide.

Without reflection,

Without company.

 

No help gained

By staying.

 

Cut the straps and

See.

Its a scanned page!
This poem has a person! And they’re not dying. Though they may feel as if they are. The pressures and anxieties of life can seem like worse than death at times. It doesn’t really seem to matter who you are or what class you happen to be a part of. It’s part of being human. Letting go of the fact that you’re finite both spatially and temporally is terrifying. It’s also freeing…

Author: Jonathon

Doesn’t mix well with polite company; his two favorite topics being politics and religion. Would rather be out cycling, swimming, running, or camping. Misspent his youth reading genre-fiction; today, he is making up for it by reading large quantities of non-fiction literature. The fact that truth, in every way, is more fascinating than fiction still tickles him.
