The Momentum’s Gravitational Spiral

Down you go

Drowned in a Dionysian disaster
Not as these gods intended
Rising on clouds to the top
Can’t even touch the bottom

Down it goes

All at once down for fun
The sling-back thrill
Shoots stones through tender hearts
Secluded in the spiral, it’s doneSaves1

Down you sink

Swallowed by venom
And tar-blackened will
Maddening sentient mind
Neck on the edge of a windowsill

Down it goes

The bright and shiny red pill
The New York minute
On a drop of the dime
Swallowing, choking on lingering time

Down, down it goes

Down counts the ticker
Down sinks that will
Down peers his maker
Down turn the levels of thrill

Can’t even reach the bottom

As jagged steel walls reach high
As the rocket you’re strapped on
Cause the angels to sigh
Riddle-knots snake and tangle
Around virgin necks strangled

And you sink

And you sink

Never reaching the bottom

About LVital7019

Just your normal, everyday 9-5er. An uninspiring position in an inspirational non-profit moves me to constant goof-offery; aimless, on-the-job procrastination; a crankiness that borders on psychosis; and attempting to craft something meaningful with words. Just another so-called-job inspiring someone to feats of insanity with a hint of creativity... (Insert demonic laugh HERE.) View all posts by LVital7019
