tumbling down

tumbling down

you realize that placing people on high pedestals
is like king kong falling from the empire state
eventually they tumble down from absurd greatness
you once saw and are left confused
that once a majestic creature,
ruler of the world that’s yours
is nothing but a charlatan
splattered on the street without reign
and you’re free from this fantasy
you made up in your head
of the bed you created
and the love you feigned
because the truth was much too black
and you loved yourself a little less
each day to make room inside your head
of the things that were always wrong with you
so to make someone great
but just like gravity
a tossed apple always falls

  I like the visual of King 👑 Kong. It made this have comedic value on a serious note. It changed the tone of anger or judgement into sarcasm or polite observation. It gave another layer to your story.

What goes up must inevitably go back down. There is a line in a song I am diggin these days,

"I touched the sky when my knees hit the ground"

The evaluation of spirit due to humility. Gorgeous.

  I read so many love poems on this site that describe how they're partner is the cure for all that is evil in their world. It comes as no surprise to me that so many of them end in heartache.
