broken

running now
broken indeed
read
past tense
a warning
never heeded
tomorrow has stolen my light
so it's no surprise
borrowed
out of breath
i would believe
if i could
not falling
climbing down
hand over hand

Maybe it's time to start climbing up?

"holding steady, gaining on last place"...

Maybe this is your black hole/white hole moment...pass through the singularity and emerge anew in another universe.

To me at least, your describing so much pain through your words.

You're like a fucking machine gun rattling out your emotions.

For that brutal and heart shaped honesty I will always applaud you.

I know that fucking it out in this way that does something....
