The pain is haunting..
Creeking
Creeping
Crawling - until I'm falling
Breath gets taken
Stolen by the air
The thief will take me too if I show I care..

Taken a back
Life comes a knockin
Then the hard blow
Out cold till I hit the winter snow
Wakes me up , all round till spring
The heat froze off another wing

The wind huffs and puffs
Chaining me to the poisoned handcuffs
On I go
No
I know
The circle is slow

The boomerang gets thrown
Comes back every time
Just fine
Just fine
Never ,out of line

The smoke , enraged
Builds a cage
Steaming
Fuming
Stands there
Yes there just looming

Now the eyes
Blackened out
Rolled around like a rollacoaster
Sees no goodness
Just an abandoned attic
Cobwebbed
Shot dead

Ground seeks the body
Takes it as its own
Strings Sewn into
Limp limbs

Finally fallen
The air does not return
Concern arises
Deflates by the smoke

Going keeps going
Trying not to choke
