Looking Sideways

by alecpanos

Words like white noise

run from ear to ear

They crawl with no direction,

no fear

Eyes black,

sharpened at the edges

Scream stories of hopelessness,

walking off ledges

Bags dotted blue

sink deeper by the day

Wearing hair that grows thinner,

roots turn grey

Don't tell me what it feels like

staring death in the eye

I see him everyday

you pass by.

This is an excellently worded poem. This was a very dramatic and honest observation in life. Your verses carried the poem​ and its message to the reader with an easy gait.
