Plunging

Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist

Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist

A single push
Last of a series
When the mind takes too much
Unable to process
Or leap beyond the gloom

Ridiculous statements
Misunderstanding the core
Getting over it
Sucking it up
Easier to say than understand

Mind spinning
With pressure crushing
As if a weight has dropped
Upon the heart and spirit
Cloaking the sun from view

It continues unabated
Every stress piling into a mountain
Dwarfing Everest
In sense of size and cold
Trapped upon the choking peak

So easy to spout words
At those that suffer so
Never realizing
That they see no light
Beyond that glinting off a blade

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

    Rather combattive…I like it…though I think I’ll have to reread it to savor the spice!
