Standing at the mountaintop
I spread my hands freely
To touch the horizon
That keeps calling me

And when I looked down
Gazed at every small detail around
Detached, losing meaning
And nearby sounds!

My mind reminds
Asks me to unwind

No one to care for
No one to share with
No one to talk to
No one to fight with
No one to roam around
No one to say anything!

Ah! I just need a fall
Free flowing!
Enroute to my meeting with the horizon
Giving me the escape of my life!

Wow! Nice words and it would be the exact words i would be quoting when I am standing on a mountain top (only if i didn't suffer height-phobia).
Nice poem! :)
All the best for blog-a-ton! :)

The Fool said...

nice poetry. it was brilliant from a conceptual point of view on what you one things standing on top of a hill contemplating suicide. but felt the words could have been richer. but then that is me. simplicity of course has its own charm. best of luck for the blog-a-ton.

The Fool said...

by the way, typo in title. also blog-a-ton rules say post title must be 'escape' - not a word more not a word less. so i suggest you change before marshal disqualifies you.

Leo said...

The title is flawed. The poem ain't. Well written.

seems simple... but it said more than it contained...
liked the first four lines....

Somehow this poem impressed me a lot, the starting according to me has a surreal feel. Sometimes the frills are not needed to make a poem work and this one is a good example for that!

Great going!
Cheers :)

Well the feelings of a lonely person on verge of committing suicide put in a nice manner.. I dont feel, as some hav cmmntd, tht the wrds shud be more weighty or dark.. liked ur take!

A Suicide poem? that was so different. An utterly dejected and depressed person I guess. Good one :)
