The One To Fall. - Poem by Pamela Plachno

Luxury.
The body that carries only
The rarest of all jewels
The earth has to offer.

Others.
Envious looks that burns
Through the thickest of all metals.
They couldn’t own its
Magnificent splendor.

Pleasure.
I am the luxury,
The toppest of the highest.
Magnifying and enlarging them,
Through the view of my microscope,
From the heavens above.

But none I want,
To glorify my life,
Since it’s the only pleasure,
That leaves me vulnerable.
Pained.
Incomplete.

Shat tered it leaves me,
Abandoned and blinded.
It binds me.
Holding me by my wrists,
Only to chain me.
Prisoner what I should surrender to,
But repellant and rebellious I am.

Inhaling,
Richest of all air.
But I cough to it,
Only it harms me,
Like poison in my lungs.
Instead, my heart.

I want none of it.
Pursed lips and glaring eyes.
A battle I will surely win,
But the war’s,
Nothing but fog.

I want none of it.
Overshadowing my life,
Like the clouds hovering the sky,
Dropping the whitest of all snow;
Happy and joyous we feel.
But cold and numb our hearts feel afterwards.

A trading deal.
Immediately, I signed the contract.
Wishing I never did.

Everyone and everything,
I grew envious to.
Freedom they feel.
While I sit on the cell.
Only it has the key to the safe,
Where it keeps my heart.

It’s possible to have both
Heaven and Hell.
That’s what it is.
Luxury.
My demon.

Others wanting to trade,
My life for theirs.
Feeling that they always,
Fall on their knees and bow
To their sovereignty.

Disagreement.
They have it bundled and mixed,
Visa versa.

Look closely and watch.

For I,
What you call “Top of all heavens, ”
Am nothing.
Empty.

Look closely and watch,

They have been mistaken,
Themselves as poverty.
But the richest of all richest,
Hearts pure along with a free soul.

Look closely and watch.

Because I am
The one to fall.
