The world is a spiral, sucking me into its dizzying centre.
Each thought pushes me faster, they crush and overwhelm.
Did I really think I was better? My mind laughs with evil glee.
I try to stop the momentum or at least slow the plummet,
For now all I can do is allow it, try not to add guilt to my burden.
I try to shut out the dizzying fall and as I do I’m sure it slows
Has the internal babble ceased? My mind barely dares to hope.
Soon I have the strength to grip, I can now pull myself up.
Each step is harder to ascend, the progress is slow.
I make my way to the start of the down fall, not really sure how I got here
I’m shattered and hurting but the descent has finished, well at least for now.
I see the bridge I need to cross if I would leave these thoughts behind.
For now my strength has gone, the journey ahead must wait
Maybe tomorrow I will leave my slide behind, Standing to watch the bridge burn.
