Burning up in the atmosphere
Was there ever a time
When fear and neurosis
Didn't slam dance their way out
Of the birdcage between my armpits?
When did my ears not ring with tinnitus
Lines on repeat like
"They don't care."
When did I stop treading water?
When did I start using loved ones as life rafts,
Shoving them beneath the surface
If only for one quick gasp of air?
When did the sadness get so immense,
It formed its own gravitational pull?
Like a black hole in space,
******* in all the surroundings.
When did I stop feeling like enough?
Like the moment a meteor earns its "-ite,"
Epiphany has struck and leaves a trail of realization.
All that remains
Is the decision to make things right.
In all the stress life can bring, I've found it's hard sometimes to keep my head up and in the right place. As a result, I've been a ****** friend, and it's time to start rebuilding.
