• Welcome to The Cave of Dragonflies forums, where the smallest bugs live alongside the strongest dragons.

    Guests are not able to post messages or even read certain areas of the forums. Now, that's boring, don't you think? Registration, on the other hand, is simple, completely free of charge, and does not require you to give out any personal information at all. As soon as you register, you can take part in some of the happy fun things at the forums such as posting messages, voting in polls, sending private messages to people and being told that this is where we drink tea and eat cod.

    Of course I'm not forcing you to do anything if you don't want to, but seriously, what have you got to lose? Five seconds of your life?

Falling Eternal

The very meaning of life, shattering
into a million pieces, the shards gleaming in a fire before my eyes.
It will never come back, and the fire fades
so does my vision, and I fall into ecstasy.
But nothing amounts to the pain before this
the pain that I felt being left behind,
being put in the dust as the only thing that ever mattered
left me alone to die.
Why am I here? What is the point?
And is it ending now, or just beginning?
So many questions I need answered and yet...
there is no one to answer them

Truly alone in the world, no one to turn to
but my own reflection seen in the puddle of tears settled
on the sandy bottom of my despair
Falling, yet going nowhere
and it will happen until the end of time
because the only hand that had ever reached out and helped me
is gone now, and is pushing me further down.

Do not leave me, my friend.
I need you now more than ever.​

It's freestyle, I'm not really using a meter. It's just a poem. Most poems have a meter, but not all.
