Best Poem of Patrick Szwaja

None's No Less Than None.

broken bones, stitch by stitch

left to die, inch by inch

the fall of man commences

in the face of his defenses

the wake of never after

aftermath is coming faster

this apocalyptic vision

is forged of indecision

the ashes will fade away

surely as the sun rises each day

but if i take away the sun

we’ll all be equal in darkness, none.

Read the full of None's No Less Than None.

Synonymous Flooding

feel free to just sit there, quiet and calm

while i burn away, like they sing in psalms

i took two steps into heaven on earth

and fell down to hell, deep under dirt.

the floodwaters recede back whence we came

and you’ve left me to rot, so we’d be the same.
