fall before i die

2003-04-09 at 22:56 (poetry)

something loosens the grip
before i walk to the edge and trip
i’ll fall from the sky i’ll
fall before i die

shifting and squirming
listening and burning
sleep don’t come easy
vomit, feeling queasy

restless, eating nothing
hallucinating, running
walks at 4am
trying to sleep again

failure runs in my veins
i’m being driven insane
feeding, falling into the night
but always saved by reality’s bite

[history lesson. you remember the one.]
