Among The Ruins Of All (Age 17) - Poem by Jessica C. Galvan

‘I stare at each wall
Hypnotized by the intriguing
Yet threatening patters
That commit suicide

Among the ruins of all

They capture me
Those jagged edges
That carve into my flesh

I now reap it
The distortion of my past

It consumes me
All else obliterates from existence
I am trapped in the walls
Entangles between the seams

It smothers me
A painted rhythm of
Incoherent thoughts
The murderous shrieks of
My fractured mind

The wallpaper mocks me of my sorrow
Staining my flesh of the neglected past
The walls are closing in

I reap the walls
Of ignorance
Of long deserted dreams

I am in each wall
Staring back at myself
Trapped in the walls of my soul

Among the ruins of all! ’
