Hanging upside down by a mere thread

Aching to the bone from the pressure

Of life

Desires that cannot be met

Only with the wave of the wind on my hair

Blowing countless thoughts through me

Sending subtle messages into my brain

Of desire

Hanging on the edge with no rope

Swelling at the joints from the strain

Of wishes

That never come true

Only the hope that these ridiculous

Things will eventually go away

Scratching my skin with their poisonous needles

Of pain

Endless conclusions storming at my door

Making me want more life

So that I may hang upside down and not fall off
