Nylon Rope

Above my head

Like a clever joke

Hanging limply

Was a nylon rope

Out the window

Like a bird set free

My hope had flown

And abandoned me

Out of the blue

Like a miracle

Advice you gave

Was empirical

I heard your words

“Friend, please stay alive”

Then tied that noose

Around my mind

Burrowed your words

Under my skin

And hope to never

Hang that rope again

Another piece inspired by Twenty One Pilots as a whole and how they have impacted my mental well-being.

  1. This poem has an unusual quality about it. I can’t describe how it makes me feel. I can only say that it asks to be read over and over again.
