Introspective Ramblings: “Fabricating Barriers”


Editor’s Note: Introspective Ramblings is Amherst Wire’s poetry column, dedicated to showcasing student’s creative work.






Fabricating Barriers


Torn apart at the seams

The people who pulled threads

Without reason and cries of fallacy

Haunting words echo

In every still moment

I am consumed in my weaknesses.


I was lead to the depths

By all too familiar hands

Past emotions bind me

Repentance looms without hope

Avoidance becomes second nature

Until the impenetrable tiers graze the merciless clouds

Blocking any shred of sunlight.
