Around and around
and around. Spin.
Pulling and pulling
and pulling. In.
Stretching and stretching
and stretching. Break.
Gleaming and gleaming
and gleaming. Take.
Agony, Agony,
agony. Worse.
Falling and falling
and falling. Burst.
Shaking hand, shaking hand,
shaking hand. One.
Deep breaths and deep breaths.
No breath. Done.

The author's comments:
This piece is inspired by my personal self esteem issues and illustrates a person's agonizing journey through self doubt and poor self image. This poem tells you a story about one's sadness and hopefully inspires you to step in and try to make a difference in their life before it's too late.
