Decay / Dream

More than anything

it was
what
nobody expected
or (wanted)

decided
it would

become
unlike every

victim or
“survivor”

as they say
before it

resistance

is

safety

But silence

is ecstasy
moreover

silence is

isolation

and ignorance
yet ignorance

is
loud and victims
“survivors” (you)
are
nothing that
consumes

everything*
that we

thought
we cared
for and

destruction
follows

instruction
everything

*but us
silence
is
lost


The world*

*of man
is
scattered

around

us
(to stay)

but we
remain

silent
“survival”
is
surely
death

I agree about it being a bit confusing...I also know that indentations don't really work on here, so that is one thing in my opintion that makes it more confusing. It is good though! :)

yeah, it was a little confusing for me and i wrote it. more or less this poem is completely random, i just threw something on the page. it's one of the few poems of mine that were written in a day, the others take around three days.
