downward spiral


I’m in that downward spiral.

[trapped inside]


step by step I’m falling

[no, I’m not fine]


I’m caught, I’m caught

I’m tangled in the noose

[it’s hung about my neck

it’s weaved throughout my body parts]


Tired of pleading, tired of asking for help.

[I’m finally falling]



That Downward Spiral.

    A place we all visit from time to time. I hope sooner than later we will learn the lesson being taught.
