    I shake him
    in earnest
    wake up!
    wake up!
    wake up!

    I shout
    to din
    to darkness
    so crushing

    wake up!
    but his eyes
    hold no life
    my reflection

      I appreciate such things that allow the reader to gather his/her own thoughts towards a given outline such as this. Kind of a bait that draws you in, being curious beings in nature. Explore, wonder what the author might have meant versus what it means to you. Feelings and emotions as opposed to often crass explanations. Broader appreciative audience that way, not boxing anyone out. Ambiguity, whether originally intended or not, adds a depth to those inclined to swim. And the English language is so full of it, ambiguity that is. fin

      I love the way you use structure to create meaning....the poem falls down the page....the speaker is falling into an abyss.....

    the desperation is conveyed by the repetition of "wake up!" and the reader knows that no reply comes....

    and the reflection of the speaker's image indicates that he/she is truly alone....

    excellent write!

      very haunting! i like that you dont say whether who it is that is fallen/dead. as a good writer, you leave that to your reader. is it a husband/father/mentor/son? is he old/young/an infant?

    this is another heavy write. its quite sad and very frantic. i appreciate how you format the text so that it gives the feeling of descent. almost black hole like...

    i think the repetition of wordings work here. again it shows a frantic way...i must say though, that the beginning:

    "the end"

    does not do it for me. its almost like giving the punchline before the joke. i think it would be more dramatic if it was at the end of the piece and written like this-


    it gives the reader a reference that can be interpreted in a very poetic fashion.

    i left this until now b/c i feel as though these are the strongest lines:

    but his eyes
    hold no life
    my reflection

    these are powerful and heartfelt lines. it really struck a cord in me. beyond it being a stark image, it is so very searching. it reminds me of a line from Donne...dont cry for whom the bell tolls- for it tolls for thee...in other words, the death of one is the death of all. so to see nothing but your own reflection in the black eyes, is to say that life has left the body, and to a certain extent yourself.

    great, great, great job!

      The word "din" what is that referring to? The only time I have heard it and forgive me for my ignorance I am googling it after this comment, is from a Steven King novel.

    And I like this piece a lot for that, lol.
    I like the metaphor of self here, referred by "reflection" in connection to the end and heaven and darkness and din,

    Thanks for sharing.
