a collection of fibonacci poems– I read a couple in this format by @stevewaldrop and wanted to try it out :)

rooted in pain

plain

plain shoes

plain shoes standing,

plain shoes standing, rooted in

plain shoes standing, rooted in a deep, dark puddle

plain shoes standing, rooted in a deep, dark puddle that grows bigger with ev'ry sob

soon,

soon, the

soon, the puddle

soon, the puddle will drown me

soon, the puddle will drown me in my own dark thoughts,

soon, the puddle will drown me in my own dark thoughts, of which there will be no escape

to

to run

to run would be

to run would be a relief,

to run would be a relief, a burden lifted

to run would be a relief, a burden lifted from exhausted, aching shoulders

oh,

oh, but

oh, but alas!

oh, but alas! I can't leave,

oh, but alas! I can't leave, for these feet of mine

oh, but alas! I can't leave, for these feet of mine are frozen, rooted in this pain

each

each day

each day I bleed,

each day I bleed, wishing that

each day I bleed, wishing that I could step out of

each day I bleed, wishing that I could step out of this puddle, and run far away

yet

yet the

yet the bleeding

yet the bleeding continues,

yet the bleeding continues, and one day I will

yet the bleeding continues, and one day I will drown in this puddle of my thoughts

each

each and

each and ev'ry

each and ev'ry last droplet

each and ev'ry last droplet of tears, blood, and more

each and ev'ry last droplet of tears, blood, and more slowly wrests from me oxygen

how

how long

how long until

how long until I give in,

how long until I give in, and the small puddle

how long until I give in, and the small puddle has become an ocean of death?
