up and down

By , Spokane, WA
floating
floating
up on a sea
of delirium

flying
flying
on the winds
of ecstasy

gliding
gliding
through the skies
of blissfulness

dropping
dropping
into tears

and now i'm here
drowning in sorrow
guilt and remorse
wishing i was dead

drop deeper
into hades' flames
my eyes trick me
those things aren't there

i'm not me here
i'm someone else
someone darker
someone sinister

arising
arising
into light

look now, mom
look at what i can do!
doing a handstand
above the swings

dangerous?
no way
don't worry
i'm invincible!

triple backflips on
the asphalt
if i fall i break my back
i couldn't possibly fall

floating
floating
up on a sea
of delirium

flying
flying
on the winds
of ecstasy

gliding
gliding
through the skies
of blissfulness

dropping
dropping
into tears

watch the spiders
scurry away
wish i was one
of their tiny army

see the stars
twinkling so far away
want to be there
floating in space

i remember everything
things i want to forget
and i want to die
again

floating
floating
up on a sea
of delirium

flying
flying
on the winds
of ecstasy

gliding
gliding
through the skies
of blissfulness

dropping
dropping
into tears
