VertigoBrain fills with dizziness,Vertigo12 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Come to my senses,
It is impossible.
Drawn to this horrible blurred vision.
I've poured out everything to be straight,
Unsure if it's safe to stop the spinning in my head,
Cracks sliver up and down.
Pain begins to draw in;
Air around me is fading into desperate seizure.
I'm about to fall,

as I drift into forever silence.
Forgotten by my friends,
without a lending hand to guide me out of this fate.
Still I sit on the top of the Ferris wheel,
going in the same direction.
In this unbalanced world,
I'd never did get anything out of it.
It confuses me with its twisted way,
how I envy people who enjoy the divine life,
Able to feel the perfect balance in their paths.
Dreaming about the suicide that will befall me soon,
Guide this shining arrow to my heart,
End this in one swift blow.
Unless someone pulls me out,
out into the pasture,
Open fields to breathe freely once again,
to feel the sun that shines.

As I walked across the newly exposed earth, something tripped me
And I fell face first into the dirt
As I picked myself up, cursing and growling all the way
I turned to seek out the offending rock or root that dared block my passage home
But I found something else, something quite unexpected
Sticking up from the ground I saw the sharp corner of something that was partially buried
In a tired fury I clawed my way through the dirt and quickly excavated it
It was a small, wooden box
My first impulse was to smash it in the street right then and t
