A Poem About Walking Somewhere

Not sure where I was going with this one.
I think it’s a little uneven. Some lines work; others not so much.
I do know that I was trying to push away from short and simple lines.
The imagery works, though perhaps not as well as it could.

I hope you enjoy.

Too much time spent carried on currents
And so I’ve come back to earth
Only to find that I know not where I am
Nor do I know how to return
For the currents no longer keep me adrift

I take a step and follow it with another
And through this process I walk
The direction of forward was chosen
For there seemed no other choice
Other than what was ahead of me

I walked for days upon days
Though perhaps it was really weeks
It was something of which I was uncertain
For whilst day and night came and went
All transitions became indistinct

Eventually I upon my path a massive structure
Formed from ice, at least in appearance
There seemed nowhere left to walk
And so I had to pass through
Fascinated, I reached out and touched the structure

About Stupidity Hole

I'm some guy that does stuff. Hoping to one day fill the internet with enough insane ramblings to impress a cannibal rat ship. I do more than I probably should. I have a page called MS Paint Masterpieces that you may be interested in checking out. I also co-run Culture Eater, an online zine for covering the arts among other things. We're on Patreon!
