Symbolic of the past catching up to you

Here i am once again, drowning in the swamp, lingering souls grassping onto me

Here i am once again, Bloodied, and broken, fighting hoardes of evil projections,

Here i am once again, staring into a blank vail, my thoughts spilling on the floor,

Here i am once again, pleeding the voices to give me pardon,

Here i am once again, looking into a reflection of myself but its frightful

Here i am once again, bound back to earth by burning chains,

Here i am once again, my halo fallen and wings clipped,

Here i am once again, silent, scared, alone

Here i am once again, apologizing, but my past caught up to me, once again.

I absolutely love this. I'm sure that there are so many people that can relate to this, if not everyone. i love how the repetition flows so well with it and completes your piece. This is beautiful. Great work!

This is really good. Very descriptive and connects on a universal level. I hope to view more of your work like this.

To Me

Hey, sorry for the late response. I like this. Your imagery was vivid and got the point across. It could do with some polishing, like going over spelling errors and capitalizing the Is. but this was solid for someone who doesn't do poetry much. keep writing :)
