Best Poem of Joyce Rugg

Freefall

Voices whisper, promising sweet sleep
I look, but see nothing in the deep
Nothing different from where I am now
The only change, it doesn’t bow

To the joy that pulls me to the sky
That leaves me giddy, too breathless to ask why
Like someone has a gun to my head
A false cheery voice, “be happy or you’re dead”

No choice, though I’d much rather die
They see the surface, believe the lie
When the skeleton shows, they call it an act
Blind to the broken bones, to the impact

Like a star falling to the sea
The end of all I’ll ever be
The light that ...

Read the full of Freefall

Fragile

They don't see who I really am; they don't even care
If I play along, it's as if I'm not even there
'a straight A student' they brag and boast
Of nothing, a lie, a ghost

If someone doesn't look too closely, there's nothing wrong with me
Yet when I look in the mirror, cracks are all I see
Hairthin yet sharp and endless to my eyes, a
spidery network of sadness and lies

[Hata Bildir]
