Solace?

Something morbid for a Monday.

When your legs don’t work like they used to before

And neither do your hands

You’re slumped against a wall

Tired of things you don’t understand

Like why your smile was brighter

And how you liked to stand out

Now it feels like the walls are closing in tighter

And your soul’s fading away

You’re spending hours in the shower

The water dripping down feels like

It can cleanse

Every word on the top of your tongue that seems sour

Now that you try to say

Fly; I want to fly

I want to jump off a cliff

End up high and low

At the bottom of a riff

When my bones are broken

And bent out of shape

When my brain’s peeking out of skull

Will I finally rest

Or will I?
